A smile research study conducted by the American Association of Orthodontists found that more than a third of Americans aren’t happy veneerswith how their teeth look, and they want to explore methods of improvement. A better smile can give you better results in various areas of life—it offers social, professional, and personal advantages. As you’re thinking of options for how to improve your smile, consider the advantages of choosing veneers, a cosmetic treatment available at Dr. Frank Skiba’s dentist office in Walnut Creek, CA.

No Need to Wait Long
A veneer treatment is usually finished in about three weeks. So, in less than a month you could have a completely different smile—just in time for your next big social or professional affair. First, X-rays determine whether your front teeth are healthy enough to maintain veneers. Next, a tiny layer of enamel is removed from the tooth to make room for each veneer and dental impressions are made. A few weeks later, your veneers will be ready to install (bonded, contoured, and polished). 

An Unbeatable Smile
The main reason why patients want veneers is because they look fantastic. They are thin but tough and completely hide unattractive dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and gaps. Veneers not only upgrade your smile, they also brighten up your whole face. Modern dental technology allows your Walnut Creek dentist to craft veneers that don’t look fake, square, or chunky—they will look contoured, smooth, and natural.

Long-Wearing Beauty 
When you have your teeth treated with veneers, your smile will look good for so long that might forget you ever had it restored. Many patients have them for about 10 years. Maintaining your dental health could keep your veneers looking fresh, bright, and beautiful for even longer than that. Scheduling regular six-month cleanings with your dentist will also extend the life of your veneers.
