Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but looks certainly play an important role when it comes to your smile. While good oral health is a top priority, studies have shown that most people admit to wishing for cosmetic improvements to their teeth - and for good reason. Even healthy teeth and gums can suffer from cosmetic damage that can lead to low confidence and self-esteem, as well as negative first impressions both at work and in social settings. But you don't have to live with a mediocre or damaged smile. Dr. Melissa Smith, a dentist in St. Peters, MO, recommends porcelain veneers to reshape your smile and fix common cosmetic damage.
A Brand New Smile with Porcelain Veneers in St. Peters, MO
Veneers can change the size, shape, and color of teeth damaged by common dental issues like stains and discolorations, chips and cracks, and mild to moderate gaps and spaces (if you have bite and alignment issues, you may need orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth and protect your oral health).
A dental veneer is a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that the dentist bonds onto the surface of a tooth to change the size or shape. Veneers are a minimally invasive and natural looking solution to cosmetic damage to your teeth, or if you simply don't like the way your smile looks and would like to make aesthetic changes to the smile you were born with. They are also used for restorative procedures, like to seal a tooth after root canal therapy.
With good oral hygiene and care, veneers generally last between five to ten years, but often much longer.
