How Can Veneers Help Restore My Smile?

A veneer is a thin porcelain covering that is bonded onto the tooth. It is custom-made to blend in with your natural smile.

Veneers help restore the appearance of your smile. One veneer can be used to restore a single tooth that is flawed, but several veneers can be placed to restore the smile.

Veneers can treat a variety of dental problems, including:

  • Gaps
  • Discoloration
  • Misalignment
  • Uneven teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth

What materials can veneers be made of?

Veneers offer you the opportunity to have natural-looking teeth. Unlike crowns, veneers involve much less tooth preparation. However, some veneers are made to adhere to your natural teeth, while others require no preparation. Resin veneers, for example, are made with a putty-like resin material, while no-prep veneers are crafted from ultra-thin porcelain.

When should I consider veneers?

Veneers can be an excellent option for patients who want to correct specific cosmetic concerns with their teeth, such as stains or other aesthetic imperfections. Veneers can also be used for patients who wish to change the shape or size of their teeth. For example, if a patient has slightly crooked teeth, veneers can be used to fix the appearance of those teeth.

For some patients, veneers may also be a good option for repairing teeth that are chipped or cracked. Patients with these issues may be interested in having veneers placed rather than using other restorative treatments.

How are they applied?

First, the dentist will need to take impressions of your smile. These impressions will be sent to a dental lab, where your veneers will be made. While the veneers are being created, you will be fitted with a temporary restoration. Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our practice to have them installed on your teeth.

The veneers will be bonded to the front of your teeth using special dental cement. They offer several advantages since they are completely customized. We can create veneers that look like your natural teeth, making your smile natural.

How long will they last?

Veneers can last a long time, provided they are given proper care. They are made from a solid dental ceramic material, and they can resist staining and chipping. If you can practice good oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing, then your veneers can last for more than a decade.
