Let Your Smile Shine With Versatile Veneers

Are you tired of covering up your less-than-perfect smile? Dental flaws can make even the most normal activities, like eating, laughing, or talking with other people, an embarrassing event. 

At Legacy Dental Care in Ballwin, Missouri, Amanda Darling, DDS, and our care team understand the negative impact embarrassing tooth issues can cause. One of our favorite treatments for correcting imperfect smiles is dental veneers

What are dental veneers?

Veneers are a dental treatment consisting of thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. These shells are made from porcelain or composite resin and are permanently fixed in place. This gives you the freedom to smile, drink, eat, and laugh without fear that they’ll move out of place. 

To ensure a seamless fit, your provider at Legacy Dental Care takes a mold of your teeth. Each veneer is then sized to your individual teeth. When it’s time to have your veneers placed, Dr. Darling gently removes a thin layer of each tooth’s dental enamel so that the veneer fits it perfectly.    

What versatility do veneers provide?

At Legacy Dental Care, many of our patients are worried about more than one dental issue, such as both teeth whitening and straightening. Veneers offer a versatile treatment since they’re able to address multiple problems with one solution, making them a cost-effective smile makeover option. 

Here’s a closer look at some of the flaws dental veneers can correct: 

Eliminate chips and cracks

Many patients have small chips and cracks because damaging your teeth is easy. All it takes is biting into something hard or bumping your teeth. Dental veneers conceal these embarrassing flaws, giving you chip-free, crack-free teeth.  

Close dental gaps

It doesn’t matter if you wore braces in the past, your teeth keep moving over time. Sometimes this movement in your mouth can lead to dental gaps and spaces. Veneers give you a permanent solution for closing gaps and spaces between your teeth. 

Whiten your teeth and more

While whitening products can treat surface stains, sometimes dental stains can reach the deeper layers of your teeth, making them difficult to treat. Dental veneers offer a solution, whitening all of your teeth — even those with tough stains. 

Versatile veneers can do more than just whiten. Dr. Darling can use them to cover up other cosmetic issues, like crooked teeth, uneven surfaces and edges on teeth, and previous dental work that shows when you smile. 

Address issues with shape and size 

Does a tooth that’s a different size or color than the rest have you covering your smile? Has grinding your teeth caused them to wear unevenly over the years? The team at Legacy Dental Carel can use veneers to give you a uniform smile that you’re proud to show off.  

Am I a candidate for veneers?

Most people interested in improving their smiles can benefit from fast and easy dental veneers. However, not everyone is a good candidate. Patients with severe and active gum disease, those who lack sufficient dental enamel, and patients with weakened teeth may benefit more from alternative treatments. 

To determine if veneers or another option are best for your, Dr. Darling at Legacy Dental Care evaluates any current dental conditions you may have in addition to carefully reviewing your dental history. Rest assured our team customizes a treatment plan that best serves your needs so you can have the smile you’ve always wanted.
