4 Questions To Ask Yourself About Dental Veneers
If you’re ready to finally take the steps to change what you don’t like about your smile, dental veneers are most likely at the top of your list of cosmetic treatments you’re considering.
So here are four questions you’ll want to ask yourself to get closer to making a decision about whether veneers are right for you!
1 – How Do I Feel About The Color Of My Teeth?
Do you wish your teeth were whiter and brighter?
Dental veneers, without question, will give you a radiant, glowing smile, one that will continue to resist stains for as long as you have them.
But if the color of your teeth is the only thing that really bothers you about your smile, and since veneers correct so many other smile flaws, maybe you’ll be just as happy with teeth whitening treatment!
2 – Do I Like The Shape & Position Of My Teeth?
Gaps between your teeth, or teeth that are pointy, too short, or oddly-shaped can all make a person understandably insecure about their smile.
Dental veneers can mask all of these imperfections and more! That’s what makes them such a powerful cosmetic option because you can fix several things in one fell swoop.
If, however, you only want to make your smile more balanced, then perhaps all you need is gum reshaping to remove the extra tissue that covers too much of your teeth, finished off with a teeth whitening treatment.
Dr. Portocarrero can go over all the problems you have with your teeth and gums to see if veneers are the best option!
3 – How Far Am I Willing To Go In Caring For My Veneers?
If you’re self-aware enough to know that you don’t want to put a whole lot of extra effort to care for your dental veneers, then they might be a good choice for you, all other factors considered.
That’s because veneers are maintained just like natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing.
However, if you’re not willing to maintain the whiteness of the teeth that don’t get veneers, you may want to reconsider.
4 – Am I Ready To Truly Transform My Smile?
Because you will probably need to have some of your tooth enamel removed before your veneers are placed, it’s not something you can undo.
That’s why you want to trust a dentist like Dr. Portocarrero who can walk you through the process so you’re comfortable with the planning and preparation, as well as the vision for how your smile will look. This is why a consultation is so valuable in the decision-making process.
We’ll make sure your teeth and gums are healthy first, then it becomes a collaboration as you talk to us about the flaws you’d like to hide and the smile goals you have for yourself.
Also, our skilled team will carefully and precisely design your customized veneers for the most comfortable, natural-looking fit so you’re happy with the end result.
