If you ever wanted a full smile makeover and wondered about your options, then consider dental veneers. They can provide you with a whole new smile. Veneers are usually faster than other treatments and have beautiful results. If you would like to learn more, reach out to Dr. Stephen Moy and Dr. Sandra Guereca of Moy Dental in San Leandro, CA.

Are Veneers Right for You?

Dental veneers typically require you to have healthy gums and good oral hygiene in general. If you are lacking in either regard your dentist can help you become healthy enough for the treatment, and for the sake of the rest of your smile.

If you are looking to correct a number of imperfections dental veneers may be perfect for you. They can address problems such as misshapen teeth that have been impacted by either wear or trauma, crooked teeth, and slight gaps.

They are also a great solution for teeth with stains that do not respond to bleaching treatment, such as those brought on by injury, age, or medication. More severe conditions may be best served by other treatments, your doctor can best advise you if veneers are the right treatment for you.

If you clench or grind your teeth your dentist should know so your veneers can be better protected with a nightguard.

How Do They Work?

Dental veneers are thin but very durable porcelain caps that are bonded to your teeth. Think of the way crowns work, but because so much less enamel has to be removed the procedure is much faster than a crown and you may require little to no anesthesia for the duration of the treatment.

However, because some enamel is removed veneers are still very much a permanent treatment, as your teeth will require their protection going forward.

While it is true that you will need to avoid biting hard foods to keep your veneers damage-free, your dentist can repair or replace them in case of an emergency. Hard candy, corn kernels, ice, and similar foods are common culprits for tooth injuries.
