Veneers In St. Petersburg
For cosmetic dentistry solutions, veneers are a great long-term fix that will make your teeth appear to be flawless and brilliant.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are highly durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth.
They are made to provide a realistic, tooth-colored look that will give you a brilliant smile. If your teeth have been damaged or simply has a few imperfections, a porcelain veneer will make it look completely restored.
In the end, your smile will have an amazing new look!
What Can Veneers Do?
There are a number of issues that veneers can tackle, including:
If you have heavy staining or if the natural shade of your teeth is fairly dark, we may recommend teeth veneers instead of teeth whitening. In most cases, we will recommend this if you also need to address some minor misalignment issues, chipped teeth, or uneven teeth. In these cases, it is more cost effective to select veneers to correct and brighten the color of your teeth than to attempt to whiten your enamel.
Straightening Out Your Smile
If you have broken or chipped teeth, or if your teeth are out of alignment or have gaps between them, we may also be able to correct these issues with the help of dental veneers. Many celebrities correct gaps between their teeth and uneven teeth with veneers, as this treatment takes just one or two visits and some minor preparation, rather than months (or even years) of correction with braces or other alignment tools.
Fixing Your Gummy Smile
If your gums extend too far down onto your teeth, they can make your teeth appear small and out of proportion. This is called a gummy smile, and we can often correct it with gum reshaping or recontouring, but we can also correct it with teeth veneers.
Veneers can be made to be longer than your natural teeth, effectively balancing the proportions between teeth and gums and giving you a more attractive smile. If you have a gummy smile, Dr. Spilman will be happy to discuss which treatment is best for you and your gums with you when you come in for a consultation.
