Did you know that up to 81% of people in the United States don’t like the way their teeth appear in photographs? Almost 30% of them try to hide their smiles or smile with closed lips.
Cosmetic dentistry services such as veneers can enhance the appearance of your teeth so you can love your smile again.
Our team at Full Circle Dental Care in Del City, Oklahoma wants you to be so proud of your teeth that you don’t ever hesitate to smile — in photos or in person. If you’d like to improve the look and function of your smile, expert dentist Samuel Sigmon, DDS may recommend veneers. Here are four benefits of these bonded porcelain shells.
1. Veneers brighten your teeth
Drinking coffee, tea, and colas as well as eating berries and other highly colored foods can stain or discolor your teeth. Tobacco also creates deep green or brownish stains that keep you from sharing your smile with the world.
Professional whitening treatments can often address this issue, but whitening doesn’t work for everyone, especially if you have deep stains caused by an injury or the side effects of medications such as tetracycline.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that we bond to the fronts of your teeth to help you achieve a bright, dazzling smile. Veneers are completely customizable and are a personalized shade to match your teeth. They are also stain-resistant, which means you can drink coffee and tea again without worries about dulling your smile.
2. Veneers are easy
We cement veneers directly to the front of your natural teeth so they can’t come off. You take care of them simply by brushing your teeth as normal with a soft-bristled toothbrush and an ADA-approved toothpaste.
In addition, veneers give you a long-term cosmetic solution. With a solid at-home oral care routine, and regular visits to the dentist, veneers can last for 20 years or more.
3. Veneers address many problems
Veneers enhance the color of your teeth, but they also correct a variety of cosmetic issues and straighten your teeth. Veneers can:
- Improve the shape and size of your teeth
- Cover and safely seal chips
- Hide minor gaps
- Improve the look of misshapen teeth
We can transform the look of your entire mouth and smile with veneers. This is a major perk if you have concerns with several teeth, such as gapped teeth and multiple misshapen teeth.
However, veneers can’t fix all dental and orthodontic issues. For example, large cracks may require bonding, and large gaps may require orthodontic treatment. If veneers aren’t the right solution, we also offer Invisalign® and other services like cosmetic bonding to help restore the form and function of your smile.
4. Veneers increase your self-esteem
One of the most important benefits of veneers is that they boost self-confidence and self-esteem. When you love your smile, you’re more likely to share it. Research indicates that smiling boosts your confidence as well as your mood.

Veneers aren’t an instant fix. They require several appointments to complete, but the results are worth the wait. Our custom veneers are made of porcelain, so they can’t irritate your delicate gum tissue. They’re also durable, natural-looking, and last for years with proper care.
