Porcelain VeneersA great smile has far-reaching benefits—it’s welcoming, comforting, and inspiring to others. An American Dental Association survey found that Americans rank the smile at the top of the list of the most attractive features. When you learn the magical results that veneers can achieve for your smile, it may motivate you to meet with a dentist at Foothill Square Dental Center in Milpitas, CA for a consultation.

Veneers Have Become Very Popular
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, veneers have grown in popularity over the years. It estimates that veneers have experienced triple-digit growth over the past few decades. When a patient requests a “whole smile makeover” or a “Hollywood smile,” the treatment will most likely include a set of white, porcelain veneers. 

The Veneer Appointment
Your dentist takes a very small amount of enamel off the front of each tooth that will hold a veneer, then takes a dental impression. You’ll come in a few weeks later for the actual veneer installation, which will likely take about 30 to 45 minutes. After the veneers are placed, your Milpitas, CA dentist may have to do some contouring to make your new smile look as natural as possible.

What Veneers Can Do for Your Smile
Veneers are an alternative to tooth whitening when staining can’t be removed with bleaching gels. It’s also an alternative to a longer-term braces treatment when you want to close up gaps and spaces. Any ridges, chips, or ill-shaped teeth will be covered. Expect your new smile to glow for up to 20 years—longer if you are very good at regular dental maintenance. Veneers are beneficial for social and professional reasons, but that’s not the most important advantage. They can also help you to experience a significant rise in self-esteem and confidence.
