We’ve all seen someone with a smile that looks a little too perfect. Maybe it’s simply too white or too straight, either of which can make it noticeable – but not in a good way. If you have some cosmetic issues that you’d like to address with veneers, you may feel apprehensive because you want the result to look natural – like your own teeth but better. The good news is that you don’t have to worry about looking fake. A natural-looking result is absolutely possible! The trick is finding a cosmetic dentist in Tequesta with the right training and experience. You also want to feel confident that they’ve worked with you to understand your goals from the beginning so you get the end result you’re after. In this blog, we’ll discuss how you can transform your smile so that no one will ever know you’ve had work done.
Do Veneers Look Fake?
While veneers can look fake, they certainly don’t have to! When someone has a naturally beautiful smile, you may not realize it, but there are tiny imperfections in the teeth. Things like grooves, minor rotations and the slightest transparency at the edge all give a natural appearance.
The reason that certain smiles look fake is that they don’t have any of these imperfections. They’re uniformly opaque, too straight and overly white, which all results in a smile that’s obviously had extensive dental work.
If they’re done correctly, porcelain veneers will look just like your own teeth, but significantly improved. Here are just some of the issues that veneers are perfect for:
- Misshapen teeth
- Stains that don’t respond to whitening
- Minor crowding
How Can You Get a Natural-Looking Result?
If you’d like to get porcelain veneers in Tequesta, your first step is to have a consultation. Ask your dentist about any training they’ve received and don’t hesitate to ask if they can show you before-and-after photos of actual patients they’ve worked on.
The other crucial factor is the lab your dentist uses to create veneers. If they have a good relationship with a high-quality lab, your end result will look much better. Among other things, your dentist will be able to stipulate that the veneers have just enough imperfection to look completely natural.
Finally, make sure that they’re taking the time to understand your cosmetic goals and that you feel confident that you’re on the same page before beginning the process.
Veneers are a wonderful cosmetic option that can give you a beautiful smile and the confidence that goes with it. It’s worth it to make sure you’re in the right hands!
