Do you hate smiling for the camera? Tooth imperfections and damage can make even the most confident person feel a little self-conscious veneerwhen a camera is pointed at them. Fortunately, it's easy to improve your appearance by adding porcelain veneers to your problem teeth. Offered by Drs. Julie Camp-Tome, Benjamin Wietecha and M. Glenn Barker, your family dentists here at Hilton Head Dental Team in Hilton Head Island, SC, read on to learn what dental veneers can do for you!

 

How veneers transform your smile

Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that your Hilton Head Island family dentist attaches to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement.

Have you been avoiding addressing your problem because you don't want to undergo complicated dental procedures? Extensive dental work isn't necessary when you choose veneers. In fact, the restorations require very little preparation at all. Your dentist will only need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that your veneers fit properly.

 

Are veneers right for you?

Chips and shallow cracks may not affect the health of your teeth, but they can certainly have an impact on your appearance. Veneers instantly improve your smile by hiding cracks, chips, and other flaws.

Discolorations caused by antibiotics, large fillings, and other issues that can be easily concealed with veneers that match your natural tooth color. Veneers also provide an excellent, long-term whitening solution and are available in any shade of white you prefer.

If a slight gap between your teeth makes you want to hide your smile, you'll want to consider veneers, as well. The restorations offer a simple way to make those small spaces disappear.

Veneers are also a good choice if you have a short or oddly shaped tooth. They can totally transform twisted, crooked, or pointed teeth. Teeth that are naturally short or become shorter when you grind or clench your jaw at night can also benefit from veneers. If your short teeth are due to grinding or clenching, your dentist can fit you with a nightguard that will prevent damage to your veneers.
