What Are Dental Veneers?

A veneer can improve your tooth’s aesthetics and provide additional protection against harmful substances or bacteria. It has a natural tooth appearance and is stain-resistant. Veneers can enhance teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly-shaped. A veneer can also cover gaps between your teeth.

Why You Should Consider Dental Veneers

Common reasons for getting veneers include:

  • To hide broken, chipped or cracked teeth
  • To change the appearance of your smile
  • To whiten stained or discolored teeth when other methods haven’t worked
  • To cover one or more gaps in your smile
  • To protect worn-out tooth enamel
  • To correct the look of misaligned, irregular or uneven teeth

Whatever your reason for getting veneers, your teeth will look better afterward. Whether you want to improve your smile with teeth whitening services or you want to prevent further serious dental issues in the future, porcelain veneers may be the best choice for you.

The Veneer Implementation Process

Getting a veneer involves diagnosis, preparation, and bonding. After examining your tooth, we will create a model that we use to build the veneer. We then cement the veneer in place using a light beam.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Because veneers are bonded to a tooth, they have a strong application with the tooth. As a result, veneers typically last around ten years. This can vary depending on usage, damage, and how well you take care of them.

You will treat veneers like you do your regular teeth. You will brush them daily and come in for an oral exam every six months to make sure they are in excellent condition and still looking fabulous!

Types of Veneers We Offer

Dental veneers come in two types. Porcelain is impressively durable, natural-looking, and stain-resistant. Composite is more affordable, easy to repair, and quicker to process than porcelain.

Which veneer is right for you depends on your price range and your personal preferences.

The Benefits of Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer several benefits:

  • They can enhance one tooth or several teeth
  • They can cover all front teeth
  • The glassy porcelain surface resists staining
  • They look natural
  • They matched the surrounding teeth so that they blend in

It is difficult to tell the difference between a tooth with a porcelain veneer and a natural tooth. Once we bond the veneer to the teeth, they are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
