What Are Dental Veneers All About?
Our dental veneers are highly durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth so as to cover up any visible damage.
Whether your teeth have endured some major damage or simply have a few imperfections, a porcelain veneer will make your smile look completely restored. It does involve a minimal amount of (non-reversible) enamel removal for proper fitting, so you will want to make sure this is the best solution for you before we get started.
The takeaway is that there are a variety of cosmetic issues that veneers can address, including:
Boosting Your Color
Yellow teeth can leave you feeling blue. If you have deep stains or if the natural shade of your teeth is on the dark side, we may suggest veneers rather than one of our teeth whitening treatments. It will last a good while longer, and you won’t have to worry about them getting stained.
Getting Things In Line
If you have broken teeth, fractured teeth, or chipped teeth, or if your teeth are out of alignment or have gaps between them, we may also be able to correct these issues with the help of dental veneers.
This treatment provides an easy way to fix challenging problems. It takes just one or two visits and some minor preparation, rather than months (or even years) of correction with braces or other alignment tools. In certain circles veneers are known as “instant orthodontics.”
Covering Up A Gummy Smile
If your gums extend too far down onto your teeth, they can make your teeth appear small and out of proportion. This is called a gummy smile, and we can often correct it with gum reshaping or recontouring, but we can also correct it with teeth veneers.
Veneers can be made to be longer than your natural teeth, effectively balancing the proportions between teeth and gums and giving you a more attractive smile.
Why Not Start Today?
We hope you have been inspired by the possibilities. Dental veneers are a cost-effective, non-invasive treatment that works wonders for so many of our patients. Just so you know, we can set you up with standard veneers or Lumineers.
