When you walk into a room, you want to feel as confident as possible. Your smile plays a big role here. A broad, beautiful smile can make you look both approachable and self-assured. Whether you need to make a great first impression or deepen an important relationship in your life, the right smile helps.
If your current smile isn’t giving you the confidence boost you need, talk to our team. Here at our 2K Dental offices throughout the Cleveland, Ohio, area, George Kontoveros, DMD, and Anthony Klobas, DMD, specialize in cosmetic dentistry, which means we have the expertise to help you reach your smile goals. For many people, that means choosing veneers.
Because veneers can correct such a wide range of smile issues, it’s worth taking the time to understand what they can do for you. Let’s dig in.
How veneers work
Dental veneers are essentially thin shells that Dr. Kontoveros or Dr. Klobas bond to the front surface of your visible teeth. They’re typically made of porcelain, which closely resembles your natural tooth enamel.
A lot of people choose veneers to cover over stained, chipped, or oddly shaped teeth. With veneers, we can renew your smile without costly and time-consuming dental procedures like braces.
If you’re getting a single veneer or set of veneers to cover problem teeth, we ensure it blends seamlessly into your smile. Before we bond the veneers to the front of your natural teeth, Dr. Klobas or Dr. Kontoveros match them to your adjacent teeth. Most people reach their ideal smile with somewhere between six and eight veneers.
We also offer veneers over all of your teeth to give you a full mouth makeover with the brightness of your choosing.
What happens when you choose veneers
If you’re considering veneers, we start with a consultation with Dr. Kontoveros or Dr. Klobar. Our team discusses your dental history, reviews any bite issues, and talks with you about your aesthetic goals.
Next, we give your teeth a thorough cleaning. This allows us to identify the exact color needed for matching adjacent teeth. Then, Dr. Klobar or Dr. Kontoveros removes a thin coat of enamel from the front of the teeth receiving veneers. This allows the veneer to sit flush with your gum line and your surrounding teeth.
After that, we take molds of your teeth and send them to our lab to create your custom dental veneers. You’re fitted with temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent set.
When you return to the office, Dr. Kontoveros or Dr. Klobar cements your veneers in place. You’re ready to enjoy all the benefits that veneers offer.
5 benefits you’ll get with veneers
If you haven’t yet made your decision to proceed with veneers, here are five things to consider:
Braces used to be the only choice to fix tooth alignment issues. Fortunately, things have changed. Veneers can reshape minor to moderate misalignments, improving the look and function of your teeth.
A seamless smile
We customize your dental veneers to blend in naturally with the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth. We can give you veneers to correct teeth that are shorter than their neighbors, for example, while making sure they precisely match the look and color of the rest of your teeth.
Coverage for cracks and breaks
Veneers cover over teeth that are cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, improving the appearance of your overall smile.
Support for your teeth
The porcelain used to make veneers adds reinforcement to the front tooth enamel. Weak or damaged teeth are less likely to experience additional damage in the future.
A self-confidence boost
Veneers hide cosmetic imperfections and provide symmetry to your smile, leaving you with beautiful, attractive, and natural-looking teeth.
