When you don’t like how your smile looks, your confidence can take a hit. That’s because you don’t want to show people the stains, damage, and small gaps in your smile. It’s embarrassing. That’s understandable, but those problems won’t get any better until you do something about it.

Make that something a call to our Laredo, TX dental offices (Junction Drive at 956-242-6745 or Winfield at 956-517-2695) to schedule an appointment for dental veneers. Our dentists are expertly trained in using this cosmetic dentistry treatment to bright your smile and help you feel comfortable showing it off once more.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are durable but beautiful shells that cover the front of your teeth. They are made to look like healthy enamel, and each is shaped to fit one of your teeth in particular. It’s like giving your smile a quick but big makeover.

In the dental veneers procedure, our dentists will first gently remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth getting veneers. Otherwise, the veneers would sit too high and would look weird. This way, they’re flush and more natural-looking. Then each dental veneer is artfully bonded just right to your teeth. There, done!

4 Big Improvements From Dental Veneers

Getting dental veneers to transform your smile is a huge benefit to your life. Your confidence and self-esteem improve because you know how much better you look. But here are four specific ways dental veneers from either of our Laredo, TX dental offices can help you.

1. Better communication.

Although you obviously communicate with people using words, a lot of communication uses body language. When you smile at people, you can tell people you’re happy or excited. Showing teeth but not quite smiling shows anxiety or apprehension. But when your smile is embarrassing, you can try to avoid showing your teeth. That means you’re not communicating effectively.

Call Davenport Dental Group today and schedule your appointment for dental veneers. Once these transform your smile, you’ll be able to communicate fully again.

2. Seal damaged spots.

Over the years, your teeth can collect damage like chips or cracks. These make your smile look older and worse even if they don’t hurt. The problem is how these damaged spots get worse over time. They’re also weak points in your enamel.

By calling either of our Laredo, TX dental offices today, you can make an appointment to seal up those damaged spots with dental veneers. This makes sure the damage doesn’t grow, but it also adds a layer of protection to the damaged tooth.

3. Cover stains.

Just about anything dark that you eat or drink leaves behind tiny stains on your enamel. At first, you don’t notice it because they’re too small. Given enough time, however, these stains add up. Your once-white smile is now dull, dingy, and brownish.

Dental veneers can act like teeth whitening. Because they cover the front of your teeth, your veneers will hide any such stains. All people will see is a smile that looks bright, white, and healthy.

4. Hide small gaps between teeth.

Many people get braces or some similar orthodontic treatment when they’re younger. Even if you did, you can have small gaps between your teeth by now. That’s because your teeth are never locked in place. Decades of chewing all kinds of food will nudge your teeth one way or another. Although these gaps are small, they’re very noticeable.

Our dentists have the experience to know how to help with dental veneers. Yours can be made a little bigger in places. When your dental veneers are placed on your teeth, these places can cover up the small gaps. It will look like you have teeth whitening and orthodontics in one visit.

Call us today at our Laredo, TX dental offices (Junction Drive at 956-242-6745 or Winfield at 956-517-2695) to schedule your next appointment for dental veneers. Cosmetic dentistry can have a huge impact on your life by improving your confidence and self-esteem — and that’s something everyone deserves.
