If you look in the mirror every day and love what you see when you smile, chances are that you also feel fairly high levels of self-confidence and satisfaction with many aspects of your life. You don't hesitate to make eye contact, smile, and introduce yourself to new people at a party or at the office for fear of being judged, or embarrassment over a few chipped or stained teeth. Unfortunately, for people who do not feel good about their teeth, many of the activities and social interactions and feelings of self-confidence that the pretty teeth people take for granted can pose a significant challenge.
Dental Veneers in Vero Beach
For people with cosmetic dental issues like chipped, misshaped, or discolored teeth, Dr. Raymond Della Porta, a Vero Beach, FL-based dentist, recommends porcelain veneers. Veneers are unique in that they can correct several of the most common aesthetic problems with one treatment. For teeth with small cracks or an uneven shape, a veneer can help to either restore the tooth's original shape according to the surrounding teeth or improve it for better symmetry. Staining and tooth discoloration is also a significant problem for many people, and a set of veneers can brighten the teeth.
How do Veneers Work?
As far as restorative cosmetic dental treatments go, they are as minimally invasive and quick as dental treatments come. Typically made of a thin layer of porcelain similar in the look and feel of the tooth's natural layer of enamel, the veneer is placed over the surface of the tooth to achieve the desired results. Depending on the patient, Dr. Della Porta may shave a thin layer of enamel to ensure that the veneer fits properly over the tooth. In some cases that step may not be necessary. Designed to look like a natural layer of the tooth, veneers can discreetly transform a smile for the better in a few quick trips to the dentist.
