3 Considerations to Make When Getting Veneers

Unless you’re an anomaly, you likely weren’t born with a perfect, picture-ready smile. However, with a few different procedures, we at McDowell Dental Group can give you a smile you have always wanted so that you can turn your dreams into a reality. As one of the best ways to turn your smile into something special, dental veneers can help improve the color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. If you are considering getting dental veneers from McDowell Dental Group, you have a few considerations to make before the procedure. Read on to learn more:

The Color

When you first come into our office for your veneer consultation, you may think you want a pure white smile. However, because nobody in nature has a pure white smile, it will look very unnatural. In fact, even movie stars don’t have a perfectly pure white smile; their teeth still have a little bit of yellow in them. Before you choose a color of veneer, make sure that it enhances your smile and skin tone without making you look too unnatural.

The Size

One of the biggest decisions you have to make when getting dental veneers is the size you want to go with. Although oversized teeth are appealing, you are going to want to make sure that you don’t pick ones that are too large for your face or you may be taunted like Hilary Duff was when she got hers done. If you aren’t sure what size of veneers to go with, our dentists can help.

The Quantity

Primarily used for cosmetic purposes, we really only apply veneers to the front teeth. Depending on the condition of your existing teeth, you may want to have all of them replaced with veneers, or you may just want to have a few done.

Getting dental veneers is a great way to completely transform your entire look. Before you get them done, however, you have a few considerations to make. Luckily, we will be there for every step of the process so that you feel confident and excited about the finished product.
