Discover Why Veneers Might Be Right For You

Maybe you’ve only thought of veneers as a way to remedy stained or damaged teeth. Well, they can do that, and so much more. Dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain that are bonded directly to the front of your teeth to hide cosmetic problems and create a more stunning smile.

At A Caring Dental Group in Cleaveland, Ohio, Dr. Benedict Kim  shares five reasons why natural-looking dental veneers may be right for you:

1. You can ditch the braces

If your teeth are slightly crooked, rotated, or misaligned, you don’t have to undergo a lengthy orthodontic treatment to get straighter, more attractive teeth. Without braces or even Invisalign, dental veneers correct your smile by hiding your misaligned teeth. Your teeth look smooth, even, and perfectly aligned in just two to four weeks.

2. You can reshape your teeth

Maybe your teeth are too short for your mouth. Or they’re all different lengths. Or maybe they’ve become slanted or worn down with the years. Dr. Kim can shape your dental veneers to make your teeth longer, wider, or more even. He helps you choose the right shape and length that flatters your facial shape and brings out the brilliance of your smile.

3. You can hide stains without worrying about more

Teeth-whitening systems are terrific but must be repeated every so often to keep your pearlies looking their whitest. Unless you’re willing to give up highly staining beverages such as coffee and wine and limit berries, cherries, and other dark-hued foods, your teeth will stain again.

Veneers not only hide deeply stained teeth (including those that don’t respond to whitening systems), their smooth porcelain texture is resistant to stains. Just be sure to brush and floss twice a day and see Dr. Kim twice a year for a professional cleaning.

4. You can close gaps

A few celebrities have made their fortunes on their gapped teeth, but if you’re not one of them, you may feel self-conscious about the extra space between your teeth. Dr. Kim fills the spaces by creating beautiful veneers that fit together perfectly. Your smile will flash dazzling, pearly white teeth without a gap in sight.

5. You can fix broken teeth

If you’ve been frustrated by fillings that don’t last or have a number of chips, cracks, or broken teeth, veneers can cover up the damage and let your smile shine through. Veneers also make your natural teeth stronger, to minimize the risk of further damage.

When applied by an expert like Dr. Kim and maintained properly, dental veneers can last from seven to ten years or more.

You need at least two appointments with Dr. Kim if you’re interested in veneers. Dr. Kim first resolves any dental problems you may have. Once he gives you the all-clear, he prepares the surface of your teeth, helps you choose the right shape and shade of veneers, and fits you with temporary veneers.

Within two to four weeks, you return for the final fitting of your new, custom-designed veneers and Dr. Kim bonds them to your teeth.

If you’d like to have a more brilliant smile by next month, contact Dr. Kim for a dental veneers consultation. You can call his friendly office team at 216-230-9094 or just book an appointment online.
