Veneers may have been invented for actors in the 1920s, but you don’t have to be an A-lister to benefit from them today. In just a few appointments, you can receive a red carpet-worthy smile here at Dr. Darj Dental in El Paso, Texas.
If you’ve been wondering if veneers are right for you, Mehrnoosh Darj, DDS, shares six advantages of veneers here.
1. A brighter smile
Do you wish your teeth were brighter? Among their many advantages, veneers can brighten your smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the fronts of your natural teeth. Dr. Darj carefully selects the right shade to complement your natural tones and brighten your smile.
Bonus: Veneers are stain-resistant, which means they continue to look nice for years with the right care at home.
2. Hiding minor imperfections
Veneers can hide minor imperfections including:
- Small gaps
- Misshapen or uneven teeth
- Teeth that look too small
- Minor chips
Keep in mind that veneers can’t hide major gaps or severe fractures. If veneers aren’t right for you, Dr. Darj can recommend additional appropriate treatments for you. For example, if you have bite issues or large gaps, you may benefit from ClearCorrect® instead.
3. A natural look and feel
Not only do veneers enhance the color, size, and shape of your teeth, but they also feel natural. Because your teeth are prepared in advance for veneers, they fit perfectly in your mouth. They feel natural, making veneers a very comfortable cosmetic treatment.
4. Easy cleaning
Your veneers are permanently secured to your natural teeth. You don’t remove them; you simply clean them just as you normally brush and floss your teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste.
5. Customized to you
One of the unique advantages of veneers is that the entire process is customized to meet your needs. When you decide to get veneers, you can expect:
- A consultation, in which Dr. Darj discusses your aesthetic goals
- An appointment to prep your teeth and make the physical impressions used to fabricate your veneers
- A second appointment to affix your veneers in your mouth
This process helps you address your specific cosmetic concerns. And because veneers are bonded to your teeth, they strengthen your smile, too. Win-win!
