Your smile is often representative of the first impression you make on others around you. It’s what you reveal when happy and when laughing, and what is captured in your most precious photographed memories.
But more than aesthetics, your smile is representative of your oral and general health. And nothing indicates a healthy mouth quite like a brilliant smile.
Some smiles need a little help, and that’s where we come in. From staining and damage to downright bad luck in the dental gene pool, you may have any number of reasons for wanting or needing to enhance or restore your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is a popular category of dental services that cover everything from teeth whitening to dental implants. One of the options to improve your smile is the use of dental veneers.
Our teeth are strong, but they aren’t invincible. Foods, drinks, medications, poor oral hygiene, and more can wear down our enamel and lead to discoloration, chipping, cracking, or staining. Unfortunately, once your enamel is lost or dissolved, it doesn’t grow back. On top of that, improper spacing or crowding can also lead to a lopsided smile.
This is where veneers come in. Veneers are wafer-thin layers of porcelain or resin. Our dentists bond these layers over your teeth to restore a natural appearance. Placed correctly, they can also cover gaps or seal cracks in your teeth.
While Veneers aren’t a cure-all for your dental health, they help with a myriad of problems and often composite veneers cost less than more invasive options like implants.
Consider Veneers as an option if your teeth are any of the following:
Getting veneers will provide you with the following advantages:
Veneers don’t need any special care. To properly maintain it, all you have to do is follow good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash.
Veneers may last for years. However, chipping or breaking may happen. Our dental team here at Tiger Smile Family Dentistry will tell you how long the veneer will last. We can also repair small chips or recommend a new veneer for you in case of damage.
For minor teeth repairs, natural-colored fillings can be used. Crowns are also an alternative especially for teeth that to be strengthened.
Veneers can vary in price depending on the extent of your needs and your insurance coverage.
If you are interested in veneers but concerned about the cost, set up a consultation exam with our team. Our dentists will talk you through the process of obtaining the veneers, and our front-end staff will work with your dentist and your insurance information to come up with a comprehensive estimate and financial plan.
“After coming here, I realized just how important it is to find a dental facility you feel comfortable getting treated by. I’ve been to the dentist, many dentists actually, over the years, and not once have I felt this ‘at home’ in a dental office. Super casual atmosphere, the doctors and secretaries are super friendly, and the whole vibe instantly relaxes you upon walking in.” — Eva T.
“Every time I used to go to the dentist as a child, I felt really afraid of the many tools going in and out of my mouth, always feeling fearful of choking on something. I hadn’t gone for a dental cleaning in a very long time, but recently figured it was a smart idea at my age, and to conquer my fear. My visit here made it very easy to do so, as they put me at ease right away, making me feel more like I was hanging out with a friend making conversation, than getting poked and prodded for an hour.” — Mike B.
“I love coffee and I heard that it could stain your teeth. However, I don’t want to give it up, but my teeth are suffering from it already. I decided to go to this dental facility in Baton Rouge because I had my cleaning done here, and I’m really happy with the results. I availed of their teeth whitening treatment, and after just a couple of sessions (in fact, the first was already superb!) my teeth are as white as ever! Now, I’m not afraid to consume coffee anymore!” — Helga B.
