Do you find yourself hiding your smile for photos? Do you feel self-conscious about your appearance because of that gap in your front teeth or a misshapen smile? If you find yourself saying “yes” then our Springfield, MO, cosmetic dentist Dr. A. Joshua Montgomery can help transform your smile with a simple restoration known as dental veneers.
What Dental Veneers Can Do for Your Smile
Dental veneers are thin layers of porcelain, which mimic the look of real tooth enamel. When these shells are applied to the front of your teeth it can completely alter the shape, size, and color of several or all teeth that are visible when you smile. There are a variety of cosmetic imperfections that are easily hidden with veneers. Veneers are great for those with healthy smiles who may be dealing with:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly crooked or misaligned teeth
- Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
- Worn teeth
What to Consider Before Getting Veneers
First and foremost you want to turn to a dentist in Springfield, MO, that you trust to give you amazing results. If you’re already a patient with us then you already know what we are capable of; however, if you’re a new patient a consultation is the perfect time to sit down with us and ask us anything about getting veneers. Ask us for photos of our work or ask us questions about our training. We are happy to make you feel at ease about getting cosmetic dentistry with us.
It’s also important to note that in order to get traditional veneers, we may need to remove some enamel from the front of your teeth. While this is painless and rarely requires anesthesia to complete such minimal tooth preparation, this means that veneers are for life. Sure, we will need to replace veneers eventually; however, enamel will not grow back. Therefore, you must be committed to caring for veneers forever.
Of course, veneers aren’t just for serious smile makeovers. Perhaps you have one severely stained tooth or a gap between your front teeth. In this case, our Springfield, MO, dentist can also place one, two, or several veneers.
