As the years pass, our teeth begin to show damage. Even if you regularly brush, floss and see your dentist, regular wear and tear will still occur. These cracks, gaps, chips, discoloration, and misalignments can lead to you feeling embarrassed and self-conscious about your smile. Maybe you find yourself stopping yourself when you want to smile. If so, porcelain dental veneers could be the easiest and most inexpensive way to fix these problems in just a few office visits with just one procedure.
Refresh Your Existing Smile With Dental Veneers
With porcelain dental veneers, Lititz, PA dentists Drs. John and Sara Gotwalt can refresh the appearance of your smile by correcting the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth, effectively performing a “face lift” on your smile. Porcelain dental veneers can be used to remove spaces between your teeth, lengthen or reshape teeth or even to whiten yellowed or stained teeth. Or if your teeth are chipped, dented or are showing signs of wear, veneers can protect them from being further damaged while also providing a natural-looking, refreshed appearance for them.
Eating and drinking foods and beverages with lots of pigments or dyes or that are acidic like coffee, most fruit, and sugar can stain your enamel. This process can also result in increased sensitivity too. Everything we eat affects our teeth, some things more than others. You might be considering having your teeth whitened, but dental veneers may be an ideal solution for you if you have multiple dental concerns like chips, gaps or other visible problems.
For minor gaps between teeth, or a few misaligned teeth, dental veneers can sometimes be a simple and affordable solution rather than undergoing orthodontic treatment. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for your mouth and then cemented to your existing teeth, so Dr. Gotwalt can design yours to cover any minor misalignment, gaps, or cracks.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The veneers are installed by Dr. John or Sara Gotwalt after he or she removes the outermost layer of enamel, after which they are cemented to your teeth. This is unlike some other restoration options where teeth are removed and replaced. But, with porcelain dental veneers, your smile will still be your own, simply covered with a protective layer, creating an enhanced version of your smile!
Sometimes porcelain veneers may not be the best option for some patients at this time. For example, those who suffer from habitual grinding of teeth may want to consult with Dr. Gotwalt before porcelain veneers are installed as it can damage your veneers. Additionally, patients with extremely sensitive teeth may not want to undergo the procedure until this issue is addressed. Fortunately, once these issues are treated, most patients are able to benefit from veneers or are able to consider other cosmetic options provided by Dr. Sara or John Gotwalt.
