Are your teeth yellowish or gray? Have you tried an OTC whitening product without success? Do you have tetracycline stains?
You don’t have to live with a dull smile. Porcelain veneers can transform your teeth and create a spectacular smile that will delight you for years to come.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers can be made any shade whiter than your original teeth.
How is a Veneer Different than a Dental Crown?
Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. When your veneer is connected to your tooth, your dentist only removes a tiny bit of enamel–unlike a crown which requires the removal of more tooth structure. Therefore, veneers are the most conservative long-term tooth whitening procedure.
Veneers Can Fix Chips and Cracks
Not only do veneers brighten your teeth, they are also used to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked or slightly crooked.
How are Dental Veneers Made?
The veneer procedure is similar to that for any restoration. First, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit. You will work with your dentist to choose an appropriate color for your skin tone.
