5 Reasons Veneers May Be Right for You

Your smile contributes to the first impression people have about you, and if you’re uncomfortable with how your teeth look due to imperfections such as chipped, broken, stained, or misaligned teeth, it can damage your self-confidence.

The porcelain veneers Dr. Armen Terteryan offers improve the look of your smile and help you confidently interact with others. There are several good reasons to consider dental veneers.

Your teeth are stained or discolored

Some foods and beverages, such as coffee and red wine, can stain your teeth. Smoking can, as well. If your teeth are not the bright, sparkling white you’d like them to be, veneers could help. Dr. Terteryan makes sure that the color of the veneer material looks naturally clean and bright.

When you get veneers, Dr. Terteryan makes an impression of your teeth so the veneers are custom-designed to fit your mouth. The color of the veneers is also customized so you end up with a smile that matches you perfectly.

You have spaces or gaps between your teeth

Veneers are attached to the fronts of your teeth, and because they are designed specifically for your mouth, imperfections such as tooth gaps can be concealed. If you’ve always been self-conscious about a gap between your teeth, veneers can ease that worry.

Your teeth are misaligned, oddly shaped, or chipped

If your teeth are misaligned, or oddly shaped, veneers may be the best way to correct their appearance. As long as your teeth are healthy, covering the imperfections with veneers is a viable option.

Veneers are thin shells that attach to the fronts of your teeth. If your teeth have imperfections such as pits, craters, or bulges, the veneers hide them. The same is true if you have a chipped tooth.

Your teeth are showing your age

Most people don’t think of veneers as an anti-aging tactic, but they may help you look a bit younger. As you age, your teeth wear down. Because your veneers are specially designed for you, Dr. Terteryan can address that issue by adding length.

Another problem with older teeth is that they sometimes have damaged or thin enamel. Excessively hard tooth brushing, acidic foods, and other things can wear away your enamel. Veneers are bonded to your teeth and can serve to strengthen and protect your natural teeth.

You’re not happy with how your smile looks

Self-confidence is important to reaching your life’s goals, and if you’re worried about how you look when you smile — one of the most important facial expressions you make — your self-confidence is likely suffering. Whether you’re looking for a promotion at work, the love of your life, or to make new friends, you want to feel good about the appearance of your smile.

Veneers can help make your teeth look straighter, brighter, and younger. If you’d like to learn whether or not you’re a candidate for dental veneers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Terteryan at Couture Dental Smiles in Woodland Hills, California.
