Versatile Veneers Can Correct Many of Oral Issues

One of the most versatile tools in our cosmetic dentistry arsenal is veneers. These ultra-thin porcelain shells provide new and improved fronts for your teeth. In doing so, they can correct a host of dental imperfections.

At Sargon Dental in Encino and West Hollywood, California, and Pleasant Grove, Utah, our experienced dental professionals offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services, including dental veneers.

Veneers are about the same thickness as a contact lens and are permanently affixed to the outer surface of your teeth. They are custom fabricated to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.

Veneers are incredibly versatile and can remedy more imperfections than you may realize. These include:

Discoloration not corrected by whitening

If the dentin inside your teeth is discolored, traditional whitening products may not be effective. To reclaim a gleaming smile, consider veneers. They can be any shade you choose; you can go whiter — much whiter — than whitening can achieve.

Chipped and cracked teeth

Veneers provide the perfect cover for chips, cracks, and teeth of uneven lengths. Veneers can give your teeth a smooth, even appearance while preventing further cracking and decay.

Worn or dull teeth

Like the rest of your body, age creates wear and tear on your teeth. Dental veneers can give a facelift to teeth that are worn or dull.

Misshapen teeth

Misshapen teeth not only detract from your appearance but can also create a misaligned bite. A misaligned bite can result in such problems as chronic headaches and jaw pain.

Gaps between teeth

If you have a gap between your two front teeth, orthodonture isn’t your only solution. Instead, two veneers fabricated slightly larger than your current teeth can often correct the problem in only a few weeks.

More benefits of veneers

Dental veneers look and feel natural. They require minimal enamel removal to apply. They are stain resistant. In addition, maintenance is easy too. As with the rest of your teeth, simply twice daily,  floss once daily, and have a dental checkup and cleaning bi-annually.
