What are Veneers?

If you want to improve your smile, dental veneers are a likely option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front part of your tooth that look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, including stained, chipped, crooked or damaged teeth. They can even help conceal uneven spaces between teeth.

When Should you Consider Veneers?

Veneers can alleviate multiple dental concerns. Not only do veneers enhance the look of your smile, but they also fortify it too. Veneers are a wonderful solution to fix the following dental concerns:

Stained teeth
Bruxism (teeth grinding)
Chipped or cracked teeth
Malocclusion (Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped teeth)

Types of Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from high quality ceramic. They’re strong, durable, and resistant to staining—making them a popular choice. Our team will carefully customize your porcelain veneers to match the natural color and shape of your existing teeth.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers are made from a tooth-colored resin material. A benefit to composite resin veneers is that your dentist can sculpt, apply and polish them—all in just one appointment. Composite resin veneers are a bit more economical, although they don’t last as long as porcelain.

Common Myths and Misconceptions About Veneers

1. Veneers Look Fake: Contrary to popular belief, modern veneers are designed to replicate the appearance of natural teeth closely. With advancements in dental technology and materials, veneers can be customized to match the shape, color, and texture of your existing teeth, resulting in a natural-looking smile.

2. Veneers Are Only for Cosmetic Purposes: While veneers are commonly used for cosmetic enhancements, they can also serve functional purposes. Veneers can improve the strength and durability of damaged teeth, correct misalignments, and even protect teeth from further damage.

3. Veneers Damage Your Natural Teeth: When applied by a skilled dentist, veneers do not damage natural teeth. In fact, veneers can strengthen weakened teeth and provide additional protection against decay and staining. Minimal enamel removal is necessary during the preparation process, ensuring the integrity of your natural teeth is preserved.

4. Veneers Are Painful to Get: Getting veneers is typically a painless procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area, ensuring you’re comfortable throughout the process. Any discomfort experienced post-procedure is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

5. Veneers Are Only for Celebrities and the Wealthy: Veneers are becoming increasingly accessible to people from all walks of life. With various financing options available and advancements in dental techniques, veneers are more affordable and attainable than ever before. Many individuals opt for veneers to enhance their smiles and boost their confidence, regardless of their socioeconomic status.
