Menlo Park Dental Veneers
If you’ve ever seen the television show Extreme Makeover it’s likely that you are familiar with dental veneers. Someone with teeth chipped, broken or discolored teeth - or all three – goes into the dentist and comes out with perfectly shaped, beautifully white teeth. It’s not an optical illusion. Dental veneers were actually invented by a California dentist to help change the shape of an actor’s teeth. Research into the technology behind dental veneers started in the early 1980s. Today, dentists use dental veneers every day on patients to help improve the look of their teeth. The results are not only gorgeous teeth and smile, but added confidence.
Dental practices like Menlo Park Dental Excellence have perfected the technology and art around providing patients with beautiful, long-lasting dental veneers. So, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth for any reason, whether it’s the shape, color or you want to fix a chipped or broken tooth, dental veneers could be a perfect way for you to get you the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Veneers work by using a thin layer material applied on top of the natural tooth. This material is meant to not only enhance and improve the look of the tooth, but it also helps keep the tooth from being damaged. Veneers can be made of either composite or porcelain material. In our office in Menlo Park our dental veneers are made of top-of-the porcelain. The dental veneers at Menlo Park Dental Excellence are high quality veneers that cover the tooth and match its natural color.
Another instance where dental veneers work well is if you have slight gaps in your teeth. Dental veneers can be used as an alternative to orthodontic treatment that can be costly and take a long time to correct the problem. Other times, the edges of your tooth may be worn down which can make them look crooked, or can make you look older. Both of these problems can be solved with the use of dental veneers. If you have one or more teeth that are different in length, dental veneers can also be used to align the length of your teeth.
Depending on your individual case, dental veneers may be used on just one tooth that has been broken or discolored, or they can be used on a number of teeth to provide a brand new smile makeover.
