How Veneers Work to Help You Remedy Different Smile Flaws

A smile does more than express joy. It lifts your mood, lowers your blood pressure, and reduces stress. Smiles are also contagious, which means you can spread the health benefits around by flashing your pearly whites. 

If you’re hiding your smile because you’re embarrassed by your less-than-perfect teeth, then you’re missing out on all these benefits. At Hometown Family Dental Centers, with offices in Raeford, Fayetteville, and Voss, North Carolina, we can remedy your smile flaws with veneers, which are wafer-thin shells that cover your imperfections and can give you a smile that you’ll want to share with everyone.

What are veneers?

Veneers are the perfect coverup for your smile flaws. Made from porcelain, veneers are thin translucent shells that we bond to your teeth to hide your imperfections and give you a perfect movie star smile. The shells are also as strong and resilient as your natural enamel.

We custom make your veneers to fit the contours of your natural teeth to improve the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth. And we can use veneers to fix one tooth or several teeth, depending your aesthetic goals.

When it comes to improving the look of your teeth, veneers are less intrusive and time consuming than some of your other options, such as braces. 

A remedy for so many flaws

You may be surprised to learn just how many smile flaws veneers can fix. You may want to consider veneers if your closed-lip smile is trying to hide:

If you have a gummy smile, veneers can improve the balance of your smile to match your face and gums to improve symmetry and aesthetics. 

You may consider veneers just a cosmetic fix. But because they strengthen your teeth, they may prevent tooth loss and also improve your chewing and speech. 

Getting your veneers

Getting your veneers is easy, too. We can have you flashing your new smile after just a few visits to the office. After we’ve decided that veneers make the best cosmetic choice for your smile concerns, we begin the process by first prepping your teeth for your veneers by shaving off a miniscule amount of your enamel. We do this so the veneer can fit comfortably and naturally on your teeth.

We then make a mold of your teeth, which we use to create your custom set of veneers. Once your veneers are ready, we have you come back to the office, so we can bond them to your teeth. We then shape and polish your veneers until we’re completely satisfied that we have given you the look you want.

Maintaining your look

The veneers we use here at Hometown Family Dental Centers are durable and can help you maintain your perfect smile for up to 15 years. We recommend you treat your veneers just like your natural teeth, brushing and flossing daily and keeping your regular appointments for cleanings and checkups. 

The veneers we use are also stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your morning cup of coffee or afternoon tea dulling your smile. 

To see if veneers are the perfect remedy for your smile flaws, call Hometown Family Dental Centers, or request an appointment online today.
