Dr. David Goldschein offers dental veneers for our patients in Tampa, Florida looking to overcome minor flaws in their smiles that still make them self-conscious. These wafer-thin shells, which are created out of composite resin or porcelain can conceal these flaws to give you the attractive smile you are looking for.
Let’s look at three conditions that veneers can help overcome:
A whiter, brighter smile – If your teeth have become stained or discolored because of age, the things you eat or drink, or tobacco use, dental veneers are a more permanent solution than teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is effective at removing stains but may need to be repeated. Dental veneers are stain-resistant which can help keep your pearly whites brighter longer.
Minor tooth issues – If your teeth are slightly gapped or crooked, veneers might be able to help you sooner than braces would. When the veneers are placed over the tooth fronts, they can camouflage the problems so that they are no longer noticeable.
Damage to tooth enamel – If you tend to brush your teeth tooth hard, you might find yourself with enamel erosion. The same thing can happen if you habitually consume acidic foods and beverages. The problem? Worn down tooth enamel. The solution? Dental veneers can cover the teeth, strengthening them and looking attractive in the process.
Once you have your veneers, take good care of them and your smile. Eat a balanced diet, and go easy on staining and acidic foods. Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your teeth and gums from damage. Floss regularly to remove plaque between teeth and if you drink staining (and acidic) beverages, drink through a straw when possible to limit contact, and rinse with water to remove residue.
If our dental veneers are the permanent solutions you are considering, we invite you to give our Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry team a call at 813-251-5740, and let us help get you ready for the holiday season coming up in style!
