How Do Dental Veneers Work?

Dental veneers are one of the more popular esthetic dental procedures. They are very thin “shells” of porcelain or composite material bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers effectively improve the smile’s appearance by correcting several imperfections, such as stains, chips, and gaps.

What Can I Expect When Obtaining Dental Veneers?

The procedure for getting dental veneers is relatively simple. First, your dentist will clean and prep your teeth for the veneers. Next, they will take an impression of your teeth to create custom-made veneers that will fit perfectly. Once the veneers are ready, your dentist will bond them to your natural teeth using a special adhesive.

What Types of Veneers are Available at Our Dental Practice?

Our dental practice offers two types of veneers: porcelain and composite. Porcelain veneers are created from a thin layer of porcelain affixed to the front of your teeth. They are highly durable and resist staining. Composite veneers are made from a perfect mixture of plastic and glass. They are not as durable as porcelain veneers but are much less expensive.

Which One is Right for Me?

The type of veneer right for you will depend on your budget and individual needs. Porcelain veneers are the best option if you are looking for a durable veneer that will resist staining. Composite veneers may be the right choice if you are considering a less expensive option.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
