Have you ever looked at your teeth and decided you didn’t like your smile even though there wasn’t something wrong with them? It’s a common feeling possessed by many people in the United States, particularly among individuals who use social media and watch movies and TV regularly.
The modern world is bombarded with media that tends to show people what is ideal rather than real, and teeth are no exception. On average, teeth tend to be crooked, chipped, discolored, and misshapen while still being healthy and functional. But this is different from the ideal, which is often portrayed as being straight, even white, and brighter than the sun.
At Dental Land dentist in Pasadena, we understand how detrimental to the confidence having a smile you dislike can be. This is why we specialize in cosmetic dentistry and offer services like the application of veneers.
Dental veneers, often called porcelain veneers, are thin shells designed to sit over your teeth. The shells can be made of enamel, porcelain, or tooth-colored composite resin. Veneers are designed to sit over multiple teeth and can be colored and shaped to form your ideal smile. Many individuals choose to wear veneers to change minor surface problems such as:
Veneers need to be placed on permanent teeth and are meant to be worn by older teenagers, adults, and elders. They need to be placed over healthy teeth, so it’s important to meet with a Pasadena dentist to check for underlying issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
Before the placement of veneers at Dental Land in Pasadena, we will schedule an appointment for you so our knowledgeable dentist can examine your teeth. If any issues are discovered, then we create a custom treatment plan to improve your health and help you wear veneers.
When properly cared for, dental veneers can last for twenty years. Afterward, patients can choose whether or not they want to have new veneers made or would like to return to their original smiles. Veneers can also be removed at any time.
