Nobody trying to improve their smile wants to end up feeling like their smile looks worse after the dental visit than before. Dr. Stark, a dentist in South Jordan, Utah understands that this is especially important when it comes to cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers.
There are a number of reasons to get porcelain veneers: cracked teeth, crooked teeth, discolored teeth, to name a few. The bottom line is that our smiles are an important part of who we are, so veneers have the potential to help us feel better about ourselves.
Veneers are thin pieces of tooth-mimicking material that are firmly attached to the front of discolored, crooked or chipped teeth. It’s a way to have a new, brighter smile!
But that doesn’t mean that you should get veneers that are white. Teeth aren’t white, but a generally a shade of off-white, which means a mouth full of really white teeth would probably just look strange. Your friends and family would probably wonder why in the world you did that to your smile.
In addition, teeth are semi-transparent, or see-through, so it is important that veneers mimic that. The whole goal isn’t to give you a fake smile, but a real one, and one that matches your appearance and skin tone. Consult with Dr. Stark to learn more about the best ways to pick the right veneers color. Remember that he is very experienced with veneers, and can give you excellent advice.
Also remember that teeth naturally darken over time, and that darkening is often sped up through habits like coffee drinking, smoking, and through other drinks and foods. Older people will look more natural with a darker shade of teeth.
Remember that veneers are meant to be permanent, so decide carefully about the shade you really want. It is good to want a new a look, and you can get it, but also be conservative, so that you don’t leave the dental office with any regrets.
