Do you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, slightly misshapen, discolored, or have an awkward gap between them? Are any of these things too small to warrant a major corrective procedure? If so, dental veneers may be the answer you’re looking for.
In the craft world, the word veneer refers to a protective—as well as decorative—layer of material placed overtop the inner structure. It simultaneously keeps the interior safe and beautifies the project. This is exactly what dental veneers do for your teeth.
A thin layer of durable dental porcelain is designed and crafted just for you, then placed over your teeth for that protective and beautifying effect.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
- A dental veneer is custom-made and color-matched so it fits individually to you. The natural design gives your mouth an organically beautiful polish that is uniquely yours.
- For a smile that’s a little brighter, veneers are a great option. The color-matching is adjustable, which means that veneers can be shaded to your precise specifications.
- If you have cracks or chips, a dental veneer can be bonded to your tooth. This solid extra layer not only stabilizes and protects the tooth, but gives it a sophisticated finish.
- Dental veneers are usually placed on the front of your teeth, but they certainly aren’t limited to that. A veneer can be placed anywhere it’s needed, to give you that extra stability.
- Veneers are convenient! You can eat, chew, and drink as normal. All that’s required is consistent oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing will keep your veneers looking great for years to come.
- Veneers are a great way to camouflage those minor imperfections. Tiny-but-uncomfortable gaps or very slightly crooked teeth are no problem. The customizable nature of veneers allows us to make any tiny tweaks you need, giving you the comfort and confidence of the smile you deserve.
