When your smile is damaged, flawed, or has lost its sparkle, veneers offer a simple way to enhance your appearance. They're one of the many cosmetic dentistry services and treatments offered by your Fargo, ND, dentists, Dr. Jon Anderson, Dr. Brad Anderson, and Dr. Joshua Breding of Anderson Dental.

What are veneers?

Veneers address flaws that are noticeable when you smile or speak. The tooth-shaped shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement and become a permanent part of your smile. Veneers are made of porcelain or plastic and look just like tooth enamel.

Your dentist won't have to make any major changes to your teeth before you receive veneers. In fact, they may only need to remove a tiny amount of enamel to prepare your teeth. Your veneers will be made from an impression of your mouth to ensure a comfortable, natural fit.

Who can benefit from veneers?

Veneers have been made popular by TV and movie actors who wear them to whiten their smiles, but the restorations have many other uses in addition to whitening. Do you have a tooth that looks a little odd? Adding a veneer will make an oddly shaped, crooked, or twisted tooth look more uniform. The restorations can also lengthen short teeth.

If grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep wore them down, your dentist may recommend a nightguard during your appointment at the Fargo, ND, dental office. Nightguards protect your veneers and teeth from damage caused by grinding.

Are you self-conscious about the gap between your front teeth? Once your dentist adds veneers to your teeth, you'll soon forget that space ever existed. Veneers also conceal minor damage and flaws. They're an excellent solution if you have chips, discolorations, shallow cracks, pits, or bumps in your enamel.

Veneers are a popular whitening option because they're available in so many shades of white. In fact, you can choose just how bright your smile will be when you whiten with veneers.

Is your smile dull, damaged, or unattractive? Your Fargo, ND, cosmetic dentists, Drs. Jon and Brad Anderson of Anderson Dental, can help you conceal a variety of common cosmetic issues with veneers.

Veneers offer a simple way to improve your smile

Even minor tooth imperfections can make you feel a little self-conscious about your smile. If you have a small chip in a tooth, or one of your teeth is discolored, your eyes are immediately drawn to the problem tooth when you look in the mirror. Major tooth issues may require extensive dental work, but that's not the case if you have minor flaws that affect the fronts of your teeth.

Adding veneers to your teeth keeps flaws and imperfections out of sight, improving your smile. Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells, often made of porcelain, that are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth to create an amazing look.

The first step in the veneer process involves a visit to our Fargo dental office. During this visit, your dentist may remove a tiny amount of your tooth enamel, for this ensures a comfortable fit for your veneers. He'll also make an impression of your teeth that a dental laboratory will use to create your veneers. Once the restorations have returned from the lab, your cosmetic dentist bonds them to your teeth, completing your new smile.

How veneers can boost your smile

Do you have a tooth that looks a little odd? Veneers are an excellent choice if you would like to change the shape of a tooth that's twisted, pointed, or oddly shaped. These restorations can also make crooked teeth look perfectly straight and are a good option if one or two of your teeth are crooked.

The restorations can also be used to extend the length of teeth. If you're receiving veneers because your teeth have been worn down due to grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep, you'll need to begin wearing a nightguard to protect your veneers.

The dentists at Anderson Dental in Fargo, ND, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles, but sometimes the cost can be too veneershigh. For that reason Drs. Jon Anderson and Brad Anderson suggest dental veneers.

Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged.

Here are some things veneers can help with:

  • Stained teeth or discolored, due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco or even antibiotics containing tetracycline.
  • Mishappened teeth, which includes: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.

When you come into the Fargo office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If they are, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. Your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth, then a model of your teeth will be sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

When your veneers finally arrive, your dentist will then cement the veneers. Because your dentist removes some enamel, which is an irreversible process, and because veneers are made out of thin porcelain, you won't feel like your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.

In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed. It's important to prevent the buildup of plaque which may result in cavities and other serious issues.
