Do you have teeth that are slightly chipped or crooked? Are some of your teeth discolored or slightly broken, making you feel less confident in your smile? If so, dental veneers could be a viable solution for your smile. If you have broken teeth, they could make it even physically uncomfortable to smile.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are made to go over the front of the desired teeth and may improve the aesthetics of your smile. They are strong, can look natural and can even match the shape and color of your teeth. This could increase your confidence and your desire to smile more often.
To prepare your teeth for veneers, our dentists will remove roughly one millimeter of enamel from the surface of the tooth. An impression can then be taken so that your custom veneer can be made. When the veneer is completed, it will be cemented into place.
Some of the benefits of dental veneers are that you lose very little of your tooth enamel during the procedure. You may not require any, or very little, sedation. Veneers can also be very resistant to staining from foods like tea or coffee.
