3 Benefits of Dental Veneers

Southfield Family Dental Center

The truth is that it's very difficult not to notice another person's teeth. Nearly two-thirds of Americans say that, when meeting someone new, they are more likely to remember attractive features than unpleasant ones - so leave them with a great smile! People with good teeth also are perceived as smarter and more successful than people with bad teeth, so whether you’re preparing for a new job interview, trying to go out on more dates or just looking for more confidence in social situations, it’s important to have a straight, white smile. If your smile is suffering from worn enamel, uneven alignment or spacing, discoloration, chips or cracks, then dental veneers are a great way to bring it back to life!

A dental veneer is a layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite material that is placed over the facial surface of your teeth to correct cosmetic imperfections. While dental veneers are beneficial for a number of reasons, most patients are motivated to purchase them because of: 

  1. Durability - With proper care and good oral hygiene, veneers can last as long as 20 years.
  2. Improved smile - Veneers can cover up almost any dental imperfection to create a new, attractive smile.
  3. Little-to-no removal of tooth structure - Veneers don’t require removal or shaving down of teeth, as you might find in some other dental procedures. Dentists need to remove only a small amount of enamel for the veneer to successfully adhere to a tooth.

If you’re ready to improve your smile with dental veneers, then Southfield Family Dental Center is ready to help! Whether your teeth have been stripped of their enamel after years of drinking acidic beverages or worn down with age, or if you’re tired of their irregular spacing and alignment, veneers are a great option! Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
