Veneers Can Help You Create A New Smile

With apologies to Rod Sterling …

Imagine if you will three people who don’t like to smile.

John Johnson has teeth that have become worn down from years of biting his fingernails and stained from years of drinking a couple large coffees every day.

Don Donaldson has a couple chipped teeth, and several of his teeth are crowded together.

Richard Richardson has a noticeable gap between his front teeth and many of his teeth didn’t exactly come in straight.

You have now entered The Dental Zone …

Giving Them A Reason To Smile

If the John, Don, and Richard mentioned above lived in or near Fredericksburg, VA, then we would encourage them to make an appointment at our dentist office.

Lloyd F. Moss Jr., D.D.S., & Lloyd F. Moss III, D.D.S. would be happy to meet with any or all of them to discuss a smile makeover.

It makes us sad when any of our patients feel bad about their teeth, especially if this makes them hesitant to smile.

Any patient is welcome to come to our office for a consultation. This is the first step in creating a smile that you are happy to share with your family, your friends, your coworkers, and anyone else you meet throughout the day.

During our consultation, we will examine your teeth and your mouth. We may take X-rays and make impressions as well. We want to have a good understand of the health and the overall condition of your teeth and jaw.

We also can take time to discuss the specific things that you don’t like about your smile, and how we may be able to make the changes that you would like to see.

Veneers are an option that can help many patients like John, Don, and Richard.

An All-In-One Solution?

Veneers may not be able to address every possible issue that someone has with his or her smile, but it’s the closest thing to an all-in-one cosmetic service that we can offer.

Veneers have been compared to a lot of things.

In a way, they are like the siding that many people have on their homes. By replacing the siding with something new, you can change the exterior appearance without hurting a solid foundation.

Veneers also are like fake fingernails. They are a thin shell that you can use to cover something that you don’t want people to see with something that you want to be visible.

There is a big difference since veneers can last for years or decades with proper care and maintenance. We don’t think fake fingernails last nearly that long.

If you are a good candidate for veneers, we start by removing a small layer of enamel from the front of your teeth. Then we make an impression of your teeth.

This impression is sent to the lab that makes the veneers. That allows them to design a set of veneers that are custom-fitted for your teeth.

And the front of your veneers will be designed based on how you want your new smile to look.

Once they are ready, we will verify the fit and then bond them to your teeth. You’ll be able to bite and chew just like you do now, and your smile may look better than it ever has.

Helping Our Trio

Let’s return to our “Dental Zone” examples for a moment. This will illustrate what veneers can do.

John doesn’t like his worn down and stained teeth. With veneers, he can have the appearance of teeth that are whole and as white and bright as he wants them to be.

Don is embarrassed by his chipped and crowded smile. When he gets veneers, all of his teeth will look complete and they will be spaced evenly instead of looking pressed together.

Richard won’t feel like he has to hide his crooked smile with the gap anymore. His teeth can be perfectly straight and parallel to one another with no extra space between them when he gets his veneers.
