Veneers are tooth-colored, custom-made shells placed over your natural teeth to enhance their appearance. They are known for their beauty and durability. Veneers can help restore discolored, chipped, cracked, crooked, and misaligned teeth without dental surgery.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells made from porcelain or resin (tooth-colored materials) bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can conceal tooth imperfections such as discoloration, cracks, gaps, or misalignment. Veneers can also be used to make your teeth appear wider or longer.
What Are the Benefits of Veneers?
Veneers offer several benefits, including:
- They are an inexpensive way of fixing various dental problems; hence, they can serve as a cosmetic enhancement option that hardly affects your pocket.
- Veneers look completely natural as they are made from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain or resin.
- Veneers can improve both the appearance and the functionality of your teeth by enhancing their strength and resistance.
- Veneers offer a quick solution to fix dental imperfections and restore your smile.
Who Is Eligible for Veneers?
Veneers are appropriate for patients of all age groups who want to improve their smiles by fixing minor dental problems. If you have cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth, veneers can be used to restore them to their original appearance. They are also a perfect solution for patients who wish to change the shape of their teeth.
How Are Veneers Placed?
During your first appointment at our practice, we will examine your teeth and determine whether you are suitable for veneers. We may take X-rays and digital impressions to create a 3D model of your teeth to design the veneers that will best suit you. Then, we prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel from its surface to make space for the veneers. We will place the veneers on your teeth and check their fit before permanently bonding them in place using dental adhesives. We may use laser light if the color of your teeth is different from that of the veneers to make sure that there is no color discrepancy between them.
