Are your teeth damaged, dull, or oddly shaped? If so, veneers, a cosmetic dentistry treatment offered by your dentist, Dr. R. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL (serving the residents of Huntsville) can revitalize your smile—read on to learn how.

Veneers hide minor imperfections

Veneers keep tooth flaws out of sight. The tooth-shaped shells are no thicker than a contact lens yet hide imperfections very effectively. Veneers are often made of porcelain, a durable material that looks like tooth enamel and reflects light in the same way that enamel does.

The restorations are created from an impression of your mouth and attached with dental cement. Unlike some other types of cosmetic dentistry treatments, veneers don't require significant changes to your tooth structure. In fact, your dentist may only need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that the restorations fit perfectly.

Veneers are the perfect solution to many smile problems

Veneers make it possible to completely change the shape of a tooth. They're frequently used to make crooked or twisted teeth look perfectly straight or improve the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth.

The restorations also conceal minor damage, such as shallow cracks or chips, and make uneven surfaces look perfectly smooth. Adding veneers can keep discolorations out of sight, whether they're due to trauma, tetracycline use, or other causes.

Would you like to close the gap between your front teeth but don't want to wear braces? Veneers offer an alternate option if you have slight spaces between your teeth (large spaces do still require braces, however).

If you want a movie-star bright smile, then there's no better option than veneers. Available in many shades of white, veneers provide a long-lasting way to keep your smile bright and white.

When general wear-and-tear or grinding shortens your teeth, veneers restore their normal length. If your teeth have worn down due to grinding while you sleep, your visit to the Huntsville dental office may include an impression for a nightguard. The guard protects your veneers and your teeth from damage.
