If you've even glanced at the covers of magazines, you've noticed the stunning smiles that grace their covers. For most of those veneerscelebrities, it's not just good genetics at work: it's veneers! Bright, straight teeth enhance your entire face, giving you the confidence you need and others a great first impression. With porcelain veneers from Dr. Melissa Smith, your dentist in St. Peters, MO, you too can have a Hollywood worthy smile! Here's how.

What are veneers?

Veneers cover up visible teeth that have cosmetic flaws but are otherwise healthy. Each veneer is made individually to fit over the teeth that show when you smile; your St. Peters dentist typically recommends 4 to 10 veneers for the bottom and top teeth, depending on how broad or narrow your smile is. Veneers are shaped, painted and shined in a dental laboratory out of porcelain, a ceramic material that offers both strength and realism. The result is a straight, white and unblemished smile!

What do veneers fix?

With veneers, you don't have to "pick and choose" cosmetic dental procedures to fix what's wrong with your teeth, because veneers are extremely versatile. They cover up damage like chips and cracks, smooth out spaces and overlaps, and mask discoloration that whitening might not be able to improve.

How are veneers applied?

The process of veneers starts with a consultation to review your goals, take measurements, and make sure your teeth are healthy. In order to ensure a comfortable fit, your St. Peters dentist will need to remove a layer of your natural teeth's enamel. This puts the veneer in line with your gums, as well as giving it a better attachment surface. Dr. Smith uses the latest in dental bonding cement to ensure that your veneers will stay in place for many years to come.

Veneers might sound too good to be true, but at Dr. Smith's office in St. Peters, MO, they're very much a reality! Contact our office today to set up your initial consultation!
