Do you need to improve your smile? If you do, you should make an appointment with our expert cosmetic dentist in Akron at Darrow Dental to discuss the possibility of getting dental veneers. Dental veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin, shells that cover the front of your teeth to improve their appearance.
Dental veneers can be used by a professional cosmetic dentist in Akron like ours at Darrow Dental to correct various dental problems. The procedure needs to be done by a qualified dentist and consists of bonding the dental veneers to the front of your teeth. When the veneers are bonded to your teeth, they change their color, size and shape which makes them look cosmetically attractive. Dental veneers are typically used to fix the following dental issues: worn down teeth, discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, teeth with gaps in between, and/or misaligned teeth. Additionally, they can be used as a teeth-whitening procedure. This benefits patients who cannot get teeth bleaching performed to whiten their teeth because of bleach or chemical sensitivities, allergies and for other reasons. If you’re in that situation and you want an effective way to get teeth-whitening without the use of any chemicals, you should explore the possibility of getting porcelain veneers instead. Dental veneers can be created from either composite resin or porcelain, but porcelain is the most commonly used and the most popular. You’ll need to talk with your dentist to decide which material will be used. Both materials are tooth-colored, so you’ll get a very natural looking result either way. Typically, the most popular choice is porcelain because of its benefits. When the shells are made from porcelain, they’re better able to resist stains and they also make the teeth look more natural than composite resin.
