Wondering if dental veneers could give you the smile you’ve always wanted?

Many people are turning to dental veneers to achieve smiles that look like they are meant for the Hollywood screen. After all, many actors and celebrities have dental veneers to thank for their perfect set of pearly whites, and now you can too. Before turning to our Columbia, SC, dentist Dr. Kris O’Neill to get dental veneers, you may be wondering if this cosmetic treatment is right for you. Here are the top three reasons people have said “yes” to dental veneers,

They can strengthen your teeth

Teeth can weaken over the years, especially if you used to be a notorious teeth grinder. If so, dental veneers can offer an additional layer of support for your teeth. Veneers are made from medical-grade porcelain, which is incredibly durable and resilient. These porcelain shells can provide a little added armor for your smile to protect against weakness or fracturing.

They can brighten your smile

If you have severe internal stains caused by trauma to a tooth or fluoride then you know that teeth whitening can’t treat these kinds of stains; however, you shouldn’t have to deal with a smile that’s discolored. Dental veneers offer our patients an amazing alternative to achieving a whiter smile. No matter what kind of stains you are dealing with, veneers can easily hide them and brighten your smile.

They are an alternative to braces

We know that many of our older patients bulk at the idea of having to wear braces but still want to hide gaps between teeth or minor crowding. If this is the case for you, we can help craft a straighter smile with veneers. Since dental veneers cover the entire front surface of your teeth, our Columbia, SC, cosmetic dentist can easily make them large enough to hide gaps or to make teeth appear straighter without ever needing to wear braces.
