Find out more about how dental veneers can boost your smile’s appearance.

What are dental veneers?

These thin shells made from porcelain are designed to cover the entire surface of your tooth to hide minor dental flaws and imperfections.

What can dental veneers do for my smile?

Dental veneers are a great, non-invasive way to improve your smile’s appearance. Here are some dental problems that porcelain veneers can easily hide:

  • Stains and discolorations
  • Chips and cracks
  • Overlapping and crookedness
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Dental veneers are ideal for those who have internal stains or stains that won’t respond to professional teeth whitening. Veneers can also offer a straighter smile without having to opt for braces for years. Get a straight, more radiant set of teeth in only two procedures.

What does the dental veneer procedure entail?

The first part of the procedure requires a minimal amount of tooth preparation. During tooth preparation we will remove up to 1 millimeter of tooth enamel to make room for the extra volume that wearing dental veneers will offer. However, since only a small amount of tooth enamel is removed, this doesn’t require anesthesia.

Once enough enamel has been removed, we will then choose a set of veneers that match the rest of your smile. We will have you approve the look of your veneers before we permanently adhere them. Then will apply special resin between the veneers and your teeth and use a laser to harden the resin.

Are dental veneers right for me?

Dental veneers are great for someone looking to brighten and straighten their smile with one simple cosmetic procedure. However, dental veneers aren’t ideal for everyone. If you are an avid nail biter you may be prone to veneer damage. Therefore, to keep your veneers from breaking you will want to fix any bad habits like opening packages or bottle caps with your teeth.

Also, keep in mind though that since tooth enamel is removed, the treatment is considered irreversible. Dental veneers offer a healthier-looking smile for life!
