How Veneers Can Rejuvenate Your Smile

Have you ever noticed a Hollywood smile on TV and wished you had similar pearly whites? Veneers can provide such an option. The thin shells of porcelain look just like healthy, natural teeth and provide a range of additional benefits, from correcting imperfections to giving you a more youthful look.

Our team of dentists at Swinney Dental, located in Tyler, Texas, is pleased to provide state-of-the-art no-prep veneers. Read on to learn about the advantages of veneers.

Traditional versus no-prep veneers

There are a few types of veneers. If you opt for the traditional version, your provider removes a small amount of tooth enamel before applying your veneers. 

Because no-prep veneers are thinner than traditional veneers, the prep work is unneeded. And while traditional veneers are sturdier and more helpful in concealing stains, no-prep veneers are less invasive. Our team can help you determine which type best suits your goals and teeth.

Benefits of veneers

Both traditional and no-prep veneers rejuvenate your smile. Some of the main benefits of veneers include:

Meanwhile, veneers can address a variety of common cosmetic concerns, such as teeth that are:

In many cases, these perks make veneers a fine choice if you don’t want to deal with the time and hassle of braces or dentures. Unlike braces and dentures, veneers don’t require special care. You treat them like your usual teeth, brushing and carefully flossing every day. 

Well-maintained veneers can last for 10-15 years. You can extend their lifespan by avoiding using your teeth as tools, not chewing on ice or hard candies, and wearing a mouthguard if you play contact sports.

Another advantage of veneers is not having to worry about your teeth appearing overly bright. This is because our dental team makes sure the tone compliments your natural teeth and smile, rather than creating an artificial look. Some people find that veneers “take years off” their appearance, while others are finally able to do away with self-consciousness associated with chipped or otherwise irregular teeth.

To find out if you’re a good candidate for veneers or to get started soon, call Swinney Dental or schedule an appointment with Dr. Chip Swinney or Dr. Kayla Morton using our online booking feature.
