Do you ever feel embarrassed, or even ashamed, of your smile? Do you wish for a brighter, more attractive smile? Look no further! Talk to Dr. Gemma Dalton about veneers in Bedford, Texas. Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.

Can dental veneers help my smile?
There are a number of smile flaws that dental veneers are used to correct, including:

– Discolored teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
– Slightly misaligned or uneven teeth
– Gapped teeth

What are the benefits of veneers?
Dental veneers bring many advantages, including:

– Natural tooth appearance
– The gums tolerate porcelain well
– Veneers made from porcelain are stain resistant
– A shade of veneer can be selected that makes the teeth appear whiter
– Veneers offer a conservative way to improve the appearance of the teeth. Veneers don’t require as much shaping prior to placement as crowns do. They are a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.

How long do dental veneers last?
Dental veneers usually last between 5 and 10 years. After this, your veneers will need to be replaced so you can maintain your beautiful smile.

How do I take care of teeth with veneers?
All you need to do to care for your veneers is practice proper dental hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss once daily, and visit Gemma Tanglao Dalton, DDS at least twice a year for your dental checkups. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, but you may still want to avoid staining foods and beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine.
