Veneers Albuquerque, NM
You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. Ross Family Dental in Albuquerque, NM offers veneers so you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections and have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain. They are designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, your Albuquerque dentist will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to a dental technician who creates your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your dentist may need to conservatively prepare your tooth to achieve the desired aesthetic result.
When your veneers are placed, you’ll be pleased to see that they look like your natural teeth. While veneers are stain-resistant, your dentist may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
Benefits Of Getting Veneers
Veneers are a great way to dramatically change the look of your smile in a short period of time. There are plenty of benefits to consider when discussing veneers with your Albuquerque, NM dentist.
Some of the benefits of getting veneers include:
- Veneers can protect your teeth from future damage and staining.
- Veneers and the bonding cement used are color-matched to look natural with the rest of your smile.
- Only a small amount of enamel will need to be removed from each tooth in preparation for your veneers (none in some cases).
- Your self-confidence and self-esteem increases after your smile has been enhanced with veneers.
Limitations of Porcelain Veneers
There are some situations in which veneers may not be the best treatment option. If you have significant alignment issues or teeth with large gaps between them, orthodontics would likely be better for correction. If you've had any dental trauma to the teeth, severe decay, or issues with teeth grinding, restoring them with porcelain crowns that cover and strengthen the entire tooth might be more effective. Your Albuquerque dentist will recommend the best course of treatment to get your desired results based on your particular situation.
