Have you ever repainted a room in your home? You may recall how different, how much cleaner, how much brighter that room looked with a new coat of paint.

Have you considered doing something similar for your smile? We don’t mean painting your teeth, but we do offer a way to transform the appearance of your smile so it looks brighter, cleaner, and healthier.

One of the easiest ways to accomplish this kind of transformation is with veneers at Bayou Dental Group. If you have been thinking about cosmetic dentistry, this may the simplest method for achieving your goals.

Our dentist can explain how veneers can help if you come by our office in Monroe, LA, for a consultation. For now, we’ll review a few ways that veneers can improve your smile.

Whiter, Brighter Teeth

One of the realities of getting older is that our teeth grow a little yellower and a little more stained every year.

This process occurs slowly, so most of us don’t notice the changes as they are happening. However, after years or decades of eating and drinking, the stains are hard to ignore.

It can be startling when you realize how different your teeth look. When you recognize your pearly whites no longer fit that moniker, it’s easy to wonder if other people have noticed it, too.

That can leave you feeling self-conscious. If other people see that your teeth are yellow, will they think differently of you? Do they think you aren’t brushing like you should?

Proper oral hygiene can slow down the staining process, but you can’t stop it completely. No matter what you eat and drink, small particles are left behind with every bite and every sip. The only question is how long it will take for those stains to appear.

Veneers can address this issue by hiding the appearance of your natural teeth. Veneers are like a shell that cover the front of your teeth.

Since veneers can be shaded to be as white as you would like them to be, they can make your smile appear much whiter when they are bonded to your teeth.

Straighter Teeth

It’s extremely rare for any person to have naturally perfect teeth.

When you were younger, you may not have completed orthodontic care for any number of reasons. Maybe your teeth were a little crooked but not enough so that your parents felt that braces were needed. Maybe cost was a factor.

Now that you are a working professional, you can make those decisions for yourself. Adult orthodontic care is becoming more popular, and straight teeth do look nicer.

At the same time, it can take years to complete orthodontic treatment, and you may not be as accepting of braces as you might have been when you were 15.

With a set of veneers, your teeth could look straight in a matter of weeks. The only real questions are these. How straight do you want your teeth to look? How soon would you like your teeth to look straight?

Veneers can give you what you want to see in far less time than braces.

Even Spacing Between Teeth

The perfect smile is bright, straight, and evenly spaced.

Even if you are lucky enough to have the first two traits, your smile can look a little off if you have extra spaces between some of your teeth or your teeth appear to be pushed together in places.

Veneers can clean up your smile. Veneers can give you the appearance of uniformly spaced teeth.

With veneers, you won’t have a gap between any of your teeth and you won’t look like your teeth having been fighting for space.

Instead, your veneers will help you get the perfect smile you’ve been wanting.

Is It Time For You To Get Veneers?

Veneers can seem too good to be true. In a matter of a couple visits to our dentist office in Monroe, LA, your smile can look as good as anyone in Hollywood.

After your consultation, we can schedule an appointment to start the process. This often starts with removing a small portion of the enamel on your teeth. When this is finished, we make an impression of your teeth.

That impression is used by the lab to make a custom-fitted set of veneers just for your smile based on how you want your smile to look.

You will return to our office when the veneers are ready (generally within a few weeks) and they will be bonded to your teeth. You can leave out with the best smile you’ve ever had.
