Did you know that you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted no matter the condition your teeth are in with dental veneers in Coral Gables? A very versatile option in cosmetic dentistry, veneers can give you the look that you were born with perfect teeth, whether you were but lifestyle habits altered them or you never had the teeth you wanted.
They are the solution you’ve been looking for if you have teeth that can’t be whitened through bleaching, unwanted gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, crooked teeth, or even cracked or chipped teeth.
But to be precise, veneers are thin covers placed over your existing teeth that can be perfectly shaped to create a more beautiful smile. Not only do they look natural, but they are long lasting. They repel stains from foods and drinks including wine and coffee often stain teeth to help you maintain a brighter smile.
You have options when it comes to types of long-term dental veneers, the top two of which are porcelain and composite resin, or simply composite. There are advantages to each, and your dentist can help you decide the right one for you.

There are also temporary, or removable, veneers. They don’t require your existing teeth to be recontoured and are more cost-effective. However, they can be uncomfortable and typically do not look natural. To get an idea of the smile that longer lasting veneers can create, you can try removable dentures before committing to treatment.
Most likely, the answer is yes! Nearly everyone with healthy teeth and gums qualifies for this cosmetic treatment. However, since veneers can crack or break under pressure, they’re not ideal for patients who grind their teeth or clench their jaw. In this instance, you may still be eligible for dental veneers if you wear a dental mouthguard.
