One of the more modern ways to put a healthy smile on your face is the addition of veneers. Ted French DDS has been working with dental patients for more than 25 years and is a premier cosmetic dentist offering a comprehensive selection of dental services. Veneers can be done for patients of all ages and Dr. French wants you to feel confident in the cosmetic dentistry you choose.
The American Dental Association (ADA) website offers brief information on veneers for patients:
There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They’re made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist.
You should know that this is usually an irreversible process, because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.
Your dentist may recommend that you avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine. Sometimes a veneer might chip or fracture. But for many people the results are more than worth it.
If you have any questions about veneers ask your dentist.
The ADA recommends you speak to your dentist about whether veneers are best for you. Depending on past dental work, you may need to consider other methods of teeth whitening such as bleaching. The ADA also states they do not provide specific answers to questions about dental issues and your personal dentist should always be your primary source of information.
