Choosing Veneers that Suit Your Face

Choosing Veneers that Suit Your Face

Veneers are a great way to get your perfect smile, but the definition of a “perfect smile” is different for everyone. The veneers that suit one the best, may not suit you and your face best. TThe good news is that custom dental veneers in Burlington, ON allow you to design the best set of veneer teeth for your face.

Many people need help choosing which veneer option to move forward with. Continue reading for tips on choosing veneers that suit your face.

What Colour Should I Choose?

It is a common mistake when choosing veneers to pick the whitest shade available. Though veneers can make your smile whiter and brighter, it is better to avoid the brightest option. Think about how the colour you choose will look as part of your face. Ultra white veneers typically look more fake than a shade one or two below.

Look at the white part of your eyes. Consider picking a colour that is similar to the whites of your eyes or corresponds with it. That way,  your veneers will blend into your face and appear natural. Another thing to consider is your skin colour. If you have lighter skin, your veneers should be brighter in order to contrast. If you have darker skin, try to shy away from any extreme white shades; otherwise, your veneers will contras too much with your skin.

Choosing the Tooth Shape

Generally, your tooth shape should compliment your face shape. Since veneers come in many different shapes, it can be difficult to select a shape that will compliment your face. Here are some helpful tips based on the shape of your face.

  • Round Face: Choose a long-shaped tooth to help lengthen the face.
  • Heart-Shaped: Find shorter and rounder veneers to compliment this face shape.
  • Square-Shaped: Rounded teeth will soften the sharp angles of your face.
  • Oval-Shaped: Select square teeth to add dimension and fullness to your long face.
