Dental VeneersFind out what dental veneers in Fayetteville can do to improve your smile.

Did you know that a smile is one of the first features someone notices about you? Think about all the times you smile in a day and you may be surprised to realize just how many people actually see your smile. While the majority of people think a bad smile can affect someone’s personal and professional successes, there are simple ways to boost your smile appearance. If you want to hide gaps between teeth or overcrowding without opting for years of braces, then consider how getting dental veneers in Fayetteville could help.

About Dental Veneers

Chances are pretty good that you’ve seen someone wearing dental veneers but you haven’t been able to tell. Many Hollywood stars opt for veneers to give them that straighter, whiter smile without going through time-consuming procedures. Dental veneers consist of thin layers of porcelain that go over the front of your teeth to hide stains, cracks and chips, minor crookedness and misshapen teeth, overlapping teeth and even gaps between teeth.

For those who don’t want to get braces to close these gaps or to fix minor overlaps between teeth, dental veneers are a great and fast way to get the results you want without wearing braces.

Getting Dental Veneers

Before the veneers are applied, we need to shave down some of your tooth’s enamel to make room for the volume the veneers will add to your teeth. After all, no one wants a bulky smile. Shaving down your tooth’s enamel is not painful and will not require anesthesia. The amount of enamel is minimal—only about ½ millimeter. However, once the enamel is removed it cannot be reversed.

After tooth preparation is complete, we will go about finding the veneers that will match the rest of your smile. Veneers offer a superior translucency that mimics that of natural teeth, so your veneer smile will always look natural. Once we get your approval we will paint dental cement between the veneers and your teeth and use a light to cure the cement and permanent adhere the veneers to your smile. It’s that easy!

Benefits of Dental Veneers

The major advantage to choosing veneers over other cosmetic procedures is that dental veneers give you the look you want without long or painful treatments. Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about anesthesia as you would if you opted for dental crowns to replace your smile. Enjoy the ease of hiding dental defects like cracks and gaps between teeth with veneers.

If you are dealing with gaps between teeth or other minor dental problems, find out if dental veneers could enhance and alter your smile for the better. Contact your Fayetteville dentist at Dental Traditions to schedule a one-on-one consultation.
