Dental Veneers Can Save Your Smile
Lina is one of our long-time patients. She has been coming to our office ever since she first moved to St. Petersburg. And she has more or less been satisfied with her oral health. But in recent months, Lina had begun to grow self-conscious about certain aspects of her smile. She had developed some cosmetic issues that were embarrassing to her.
Luckily, we knew just what to do to get her smiling again. We turned her on to dental veneers and now no one can see any damage whatsoever. Lina’s story has a happy ending and we are confident that yours can do. At Jeffery A. Spilman DDS, we are committed to making you look and feel great. All you have to do is set-up a cosmetic dentistry consultation so that we can see if dental veneers can save your smile.
What are veneers? Dental veneers are durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth to hide all of your imperfections.
They are designed to provide a realistic, tooth-colored look that will give you a wonderful smile. There are many problems that veneers can fix, including:
We know that yellow or discolored teeth can really bring you down. If you have deep stains or if the natural shade of your teeth is dark, we may recommend teeth veneers instead of teeth whitening.
In certain instances, we will recommend this if you also need to address some minor misalignment issues, chipped teeth, or uneven teeth. In these cases, it makes more sense to opt for veneers to correct and lighten the color of your teeth rather than to attempt to whiten your enamel.
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.
You can feel just like a rock star when we are through with you! In fact, 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 Gummy Smiles
If your gums extend too far down onto your teeth, they can make your teeth appear small and out of proportion. This condition is called a gummy smile, and we can correct it with gum reshaping or recontouring, but we can also correct it with dental veneers.
How can veneers help? 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, we will be happy to discuss which treatment is best for you and your gums with you when you come in for a consultation.
