Dental veneers can certainly give you something to smile about.

Everyone should feel confident and proud of their smiles; unfortunately, everything from deep stains to teeth gaps can leave you hiding your smile from those around you. This is why our Clayton, MO, cosmetic dentist, Dr. William Peterson, is proud to offer dental veneers. These cosmetic restorations give you a chance to show off your beautiful smile rather than hiding it.

What are dental veneers and how do they work?

Made from durable and beautiful porcelain, veneers are customized shells that are placed on the front of your smile to hide any flaws. Hate that gap between your front teeth? Wish your teeth were just a bit longer? Veneers can do all that (and more!).

Since veneers become the new outer layer for your teeth, this means that they can easily conceal or “fix”,

  • Chips and cracks
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Minor overcrowding
  • Malformed or oddly shaped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • “Gummy smiles”

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers provide our patients with a variety of benefits, which is why they are such a popular treatment for adults. Some of the benefits of this cosmetic treatment include:

  • Improved self-esteem
  • A revamped, improved smile
  • An easy way to hide imperfections
  • Strong, more durable teeth
  • A smile that is stain resistant (yep, porcelain is also resistant to stains)
  • Restorations that could last up to 20 years
  • Amazing, fast results
  • A straighter smile without needing to wear braces
  • A smile that is easy to care for and maintain
  • Minimal tooth preparation and non-invasive dental procedures

What makes someone a good candidate for veneers?

If you are dealing with any of the issues above, then chances are good that veneers are right for you. Of course, we need to make sure that your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry. This means that you will need to come into our Clayton office for a comprehensive evaluation. If you have a healthy, cavity-free smile then veneers could give you the smile you’ve always wanted!
