Your dentist has an option that does more than just whiten your teeth!
A bright, white smile adds confidence and makes a great impression. A variety of tooth-whitening options are available, ranging from dentist office treatments to whitening strips available at the grocery store. But for many people, tooth discoloration is not the only problem. Tooth size, shape, and positioning are also factors that affect the look of your smile. If any of these are a concern for you, the dentists at Weninger Dentistry can help. By applying dental veneers, we have provided many of our Tampa area dental patients with the smile they always wanted.
Veneers are thin laminates that are custom fitted and applied directly to your natural teeth. In addition to correcting the discoloration that occurs from coffee, tea, and tobacco use, veneers can hide imperfections such as chips and cracks. Dental veneers also can close gaps between teeth and give teeth a well-aligned appearance.
Created from a custom impression, the veneer is bonded directly to the tooth. Application of the veneer begins with removing a very small amount of the original tooth enamel to create room for the veneer and ensure proper fitting. This preserves tooth strength and function while creating an improved appearance for the tooth.
Taking care of veneers is basically the same as taking care of your original teeth. Routine flossing and brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste will keep your new smile looking great. If you tend to clench or grind your teeth, you may be fitted for a nighttime bite guard to protect your veneers. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, your veneers could last for decades.
Success with dental veneers has a lot to do with the skill and expertise of the dentist and dental laboratory used to create the veneers. Weninger Dentistry is thoroughly knowledgeable and experienced in the application of veneers, and the dental team Tampa area patients trust.
