Smile More With Dental Veneers!

The truth is that most of our teeth acquire stains, chips, breaks, and cracks over our lifetime. In addition, some of us have always been dissatisfied with the shape of our teeth, or some permanent discoloration, or maybe even fillings that are showing their age.

Did you know that most of those flaws can be masked by dental veneers?

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are very thin, but strong, shells that are permanently bonded to the front surface of teeth. Usually made of porcelain, dental veneers provide a natural-looking, beautiful new surface. That’s because dental porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent and can be matched to the color of adjacent teeth.

Natural looking and highly resistant to permanent discoloration from coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco, your smile will have a healthy, natural look!

Dental veneers can help improve or eliminate the following:
    • Color: your teeth can become stained by food and drink, smoking, and even normal aging. Available in numerous natural tooth-color shades, you can choose from the most natural-looking enamel color to the brightest white of Hollywood stars.
      We will work with you to get you the desired shade you want. After all, you want your dental veneers to blend in with the rest of your smile, so they don’t stand out like a sore thumb! We can match them so closely, no one will even know you’ve had work done. We want you to be happy with the outcome and proud to share it.
    • Size & Shape: your teeth may not have the ideal shape or size. For example, some people consider rounder teeth more feminine and square teeth more masculine. We can shape and size the veneers to flatter your face and smile. We’ll help you determine what’s best for you. And that means asking the right questions to find exactly what kind of look it is that you’re going for. There dozens of options – in the end, the choice is completely yours!
    • Alignment & Spacing: close gaps and straighten teeth without braces! Small gaps between teeth can be covered and slight corrections in alignment can be made while improving tooth color and shape. In the dental world, a gap is also known as a diastema. It usually happens between the two upper front teeth. You might feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about smiling because of that extra space between your teeth. Dental veneers are often the best option for these patients.
How is the veneer procedure performed?

Your veneers will be custom-made especially for you according to the specific color, shape, and size required. You can expect to make at least two visits to Iris Dentistry – one for impressions and to take your unique tooth measurements, and one to prepare and affix the veneers once they have been created for you.

Caring for your veneers

Looking after your veneers is really quite simple; there aren’t any special pastes or mouthwashes you need to buy. Just brush your teeth regularly and keep up your flossing routine.

With proper maintenance and diligent home cleaning, your new veneers will stay bright for years (some patients report they still look great after two decades

And it’s also wise to avoid (or consume in moderation) beverages, foods, and substances that can cause staining. Veneers, just like natural teeth, can be stained.
