How Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence

How Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence

Have you ever wished you could switch teeth with another person? Maybe you’ve got a single tooth you hate that’s stained or chipped. Maybe you have a gap in your smile that bothers you. Or maybe you feel like something is off with all of your teeth; they could be too short or different sizes. 

Whatever the issue, here at American Dental Clinic in San Diego, California, Emmanuel Aguilar, DMD, offers a solution. With porcelain veneers, he can completely transform your smile. If you’re ready for a major mouth transformation, it’s time to talk with Dr. Aguilar about how veneers can brighten your smile and boost your confidence. 

Understanding veneers

Dr. Aguilar customizes your thin dental veneers porcelain shells that he bonds to the front of any tooth you want to change. Because people then see the veneer, not the tooth underneath, this allows you to change your tooth’s size, shape, length, and/or color.

Veneers also give you a durable and affordable alternative to a dental crown, a custom-made restoration that sits over the top of your tooth. Veneers don’t improve your tooth health alone, but if your issue is only cosmetic, they’re an ideal solution. Plus, because they resist decay, they can give you a vibrant smile with supporting your overall oral health. 

Dentists generally make veneers from porcelain or resin composite materials. Here at American Dental Clinic, Dr. Aguilar uses porcelain. Why? For starters, porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. They’re also stronger, and they look more like your natural teeth.

In fact, veneers can last a decade or more. And when you need to replace them, Dr. Aguilar can do so to keep your smile looking its best.

Four things veneers can do for you

You might consider veneers if you want to change:

1. Stained or otherwise discolored teeth

While tooth whitening can go a long way, it doesn’t address all types of tooth discoloration. If whitening doesn’t work for you, veneers can brighten your smile. 

2. Misalignment

If you have a gap in your smile or your teeth are otherwise uneven, veneers could be an easier way to correct the issue than orthodontic treatment. Talk with Dr. Aguilar so he can recommend the right path to your smile goals. 

3. A “gummy” smile

If you feel like your smile is more gum than teeth, Dr. Aguilar can use veneers to lengthen your teeth. This balances the proportions in your mouth, beautifying your smile. 

4. Chips and cracks

If you have a broken tooth, a veneer doesn’t just fix the issue cosmetically. It can also create a barrier over the crack or chip, defending against bacteria and resulting in decay.
