Do you ever feel embarrassed, or even ashamed, to smile? Do you have smile flaws like discolored, worn down, chipped, or gapped teeth? Dental veneers in Riddle, Oregon, may be for you! Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored materials that are custom made to cover the front of your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. Before you decide whether or not to have veneers placed by Dr. Natanael Repta, consider the following pros and cons:
Dental veneers are made to look like your natural teeth. Dental veneers can restore the beauty of worn down, chipped, or broken teeth. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are slightly crooked or misshaped. Dental veneers can close small gaps between teeth. A shade of veneer can be chosen that makes your teeth look brighter. Porcelain dental veneers are stain resistant. Veneers are a more conservative approach to improving the beauty of your smile than dental crowns. Veneers don’t require as much tooth alteration before being placed and they are still stronger and more aesthetic.
Having dental veneers placed is irreversible, as the tooth enamel is shaped before the veneers are placed. Because the enamel is shaped, the teeth may become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. Your dental veneers may not exactly match the shade of your natural teeth. Also, you should be aware that once your veneers are in place, their shade cannot be altered.
