Why You Should Consider Veneers if You Want a Celebrity Smile

Why You Should Consider Veneers if You Want a Celebrity Smile

Smiling is a sign that you’re living life right. Research shows that smiling can boost your moods, “tricking” your brain into happiness. But what if you’re self-conscious of your not-so-pearly whites?

If you long for a celebrity smile, consider veneers. Placed on your teeth using noninvasive techniques, they give you the desired whiter and brighter look.

Our dental team at Swinney Dental in Tyler, Texas, is pleased to offer veneers to address a range of common smile complaints.

Let’s delve into veneers, including what the treatment entails and why to consider them.

Veneers basics

Veneers are custom-made shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth for a more consistent or bright appearance. Made of porcelain or a composite material, these wafer-thin devices look just like natural, healthy teeth.

At Swinney Dental, we offer traditional veneers and no-prep veneers. Traditional veneers require several appointments to remove a thin layer of your enamel. For no-prep veneers, you only need one appointment. No-prep veneers are thinner than traditional veneers, so they may not last as long. Still, they’re also more easily reversible and save you time.

Still, all veneers are markedly durable. Once in place, they typically last for about 7-15 years

Reasons to consider veneers

A smile you find more attractive and confident about is the main reason people love veneers. 

Specific complaints veneers address include:

Because veneers are more resistant to discoloration than natural tooth enamel, you won’t have to worry about stains from coffee or red wine.

Whiter teeth with veneers are a great option if you have sensitive teeth and find teeth whitening agents irritating.

Furthermore, veneers require far less time and maintenance than other smile-enhancing treatments, like Invisalign

Good candidates for veneers

Veneers may be an ideal option if you have mild issues with your smile, such as slight misalignment or gaps.

Veneers can also help if you have multiple complaints about your smile that you’d like addressed at once. If you’d like whiter teeth and hide a chip, a single treatment solves both issues. 

To get veneers, you must have good oral health. If you have gum disease or cavities, those issues will have to be treated before we can place veneers.
