Summer is finally in full swing, and you might have several fun things planned for you and your loved ones, including a trip down to your favorite beach. But before you hit the road, you may find yourself wondering if there’s anything you can do to improve the appearance of your pearly whites and have them looking their best for all of the pictures you’ll be taking and memories you’ll be making. Your trusted cosmetic dentist in Studio City is here to help! Keep reading to learn more about veneers and how they’re the secret to having a beach-ready smile that you’ll love showing off!

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic dental treatments around. They’re small, thin shells made from durable dental porcelain, which when bonded to the outer surfaces of teeth, immediately improve their appearance tenfold. They’re notably resilient and can be color-matched to perfectly blend in with your natural smile, meaning that the results both look and feel incredibly lifelike.

In order for veneers to be placed, a small amount of enamel must be removed from the teeth being treated. However, this amount is hardly noticeable (roughly the width of a fingernail), and it ultimately ensures that your veneers are able to bond and function as intended. Under ideal circumstances and with proper care, veneers can last for up to ten or so years.  

How Can Veneers Improve My Smile?

There are several ways veneers can instantly improve your smile and have it looking its best for all of your seaside fun! Here are just a few examples:

They Can Mask Stains

If teeth whitening isn’t a viable option for brightening your smile, veneers can be used to address any stubborn dark stains or areas of discoloration. The veneers are much more resilient to staining compared to your natural enamel.

They Can Restore Damaged Teeth

Teeth that have sustained minor damage, such as small chips or cracks, can be outfitted with veneers. However, instances of severe damage sometimes necessitate an option more restorative in nature, such as a dental crown.

They Make Teeth Appear Straighter

If you have crooked or slightly misaligned teeth, veneers can make them appear more uniform and symmetrical without the need for orthodontics. That said, they won’t be able to assist with moderate to severe misalignment, as they don’t actually shift your teeth.

They Close Gaps Between Teeth

Just like how they can assist patients with minor misalignment, veneers can also be used to close small gaps in one’s smile, which also offers the added oral health benefit of limiting plaque and tartar buildup between the teeth.

The bottom line is that when it comes to enhancing teeth and providing patients with smiles they’ll feel proud to show off, very few options are as exceptional as veneers. That said, if you’re curious about your eligibility for veneers, don’t hesitate to contact your dentist today before you hit the road this summer!
