What Are Dental Veneers?
When your smile looks less than good, it can be embarrassing. Just knowing that your teeth have stains, chips, cracks, or small gaps between them can make you feel less confident and more nervous.
Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment. That means they make your smile look amazing. They are covers for the front of your teeth. Dr. Kiehl starts by carefully examining and measuring your teeth. Then your dental veneers are custom-made to ensure a great fit. Finally, Dr. Kiehl uses his years of training and experience to expertly bond them to your teeth.
The dental veneer process is simple:
- Dr. Kiehl measures your teeth and sends the data to a lab.
- The lab creates your dental veneers and sends them to our Nashua, NH dental office.
- Dr. Kiehl carefully and painlessly removes a thin layer of enamel.
- The veneers are bonded in just the right position.
- You go home and enjoy your amazing smile!
That’s why you need to call Nashua Family Dentistry today for dental veneers. Cosmetic dentistry treatments like this give you teeth that make you confident and worry-free about showing a smile.
Hollywood’s Answer To Bad Smiles
The origin of dental veneers can be traced back to Hollywood. It only makes sense, since actors have to worry about how they look.
Back in the days of early black-and-white films, many people had unsightly teeth. These showed up too well on film, so actors began looking for “makeup” for their smile. The first dental veneers were acrylic and covered up dental problems like cracks and stains.
However, these had a problem of their own — they wouldn’t stick. Actors could get a scene or so out of them before the primitive dental veneers fell off.
Eventually, someone realized a solution. House painters scuff up a wall before painting because all those tiny grooves give the paint something to stick onto. Dentists began making tiny, painless scuff marks on teeth, and dental veneers stuck fast.
Years went by, and acrylic gave way to porcelain. Today’s veneers can last many years, and they look and feel just like healthy enamel. This is one cosmetic dentistry treatment that can do wonders for your smile.
Dental Veneer Benefits
Veneers seal up damaged spots to make them invisible and prevent them from getting worse.
Over the years, you can collect damage on your teeth. A chipped tooth here, a cracked one there, and more can happen to even the best smiles. You can even just have some edges worn down.
Dental veneers will cover over these damaged spots, hiding them from view. But veneers also seal up the damage to ensure it doesn’t grow worse over time. A crack can get longer and wider, but not once a veneer is placed over it.
Veneers cover small gaps between your teeth, making it look like you just had orthodontics done.
Your teeth never really stop moving. That’s because you’re always mashing food up with your teeth. The pressure from chewing can nudge your teeth one way or another. That means you could have small gaps in your smile even if you had braces as a teen.
Thankfully, you can get your dental veneers made just a little too big in places. These will cover those gaps, making your smile look tight and straight again.
Veneers cover over stains left behind from years of coffee, wine, or tobacco.
Enamel is very tough, but it is a little porous. That means dark food and drink can leave behind small stains on your teeth. Over time, these add up to turn things from “pearly white” to something dark and brown.
Dental veneers are similar to teeth whitening because they cover all such stains. Your veneers will be made to look like bright, healthy enamel.
