Our appearances affect our self-esteem, and this applies to almost everyone. A chipped tooth can make us conscious of our smile. Cosmetic dentistry is something we provide here at Rejuvenate Dental Arts in Bethel.
Dentistry isn’t just about making teeth functional. It’s also about making sure patients are happy with their smiles. Now that we have the tools to make that happen, there’s no reason to hold back. Veneers are a very popular choice that people ask us about.
Veneers are shells that we apply permanently to teeth to improve their appearance. They’re very thin and are made from porcelain or composite resin so they can have the same color as the rest of your teeth.
We attach them permanently so that they’ll last about ten years or so. They can be used to cover up broken teeth, gaps between your teeth, and teeth that are unusually small compared to others. Some patients only need a single veneer, while others prefer to get them for most of their front teeth.
Unfortunately, veneers aren’t usually covered by insurance as they’re cosmetic procedures. To find out about their price here at Rejuvenate Dental Arts, give us a call or visit us, and we’ll be able to give you all the information you need after a quick assessment.
One of the things we appreciate most about veneers is that they’re easy to take care of. After we attach them to your teeth, you’ll be able to resume your normal life in no time. Just wait until the local anesthesia wears off before you start eating to avoid biting your lips and cheeks. After that, you can eat regularly. Just make sure you avoid biting really hard objects. We also recommend chewing hard foods with your back teeth.
Wear a mouthguard when playing sports and get a retainer if you grind your teeth in your sleep. Veneers will barely change your life or affect your eating habits, and you won’t need to change them for a long time. They’ll make your smile much brighter, though.
