When people think of veneers, they often imagine a perfect Hollywood smile. While it’s true that veneers are great for improving the appearance of your teeth, they can also serve a number of other important benefits.
What are Veneers?
In essence, a veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front side of your tooth. To make this possible, a thin layer of tooth structure is removed which gives the veneer space to adhere to the tooth. Because the veneer is fabricated indirectly—that is, prior to being glued to your tooth—it can be customized in many different aspects to meet your needs or desires.
Veneers Are Useful In Many Situations
For instance, if you have deep, permanent staining, veneers are the perfect option for improving the color of your teeth. Perhaps you have small gaps between your front teeth—veneers can be designed to close these spaces, dramatically improving the appearance of your smile. In some cases, we can even design veneers to make teeth that are slightly crooked appear to be in perfect alignment.
Experience the Making of Veneers
Many times we go the extra mile and invite our laboratory technician to assess your tooth color and shape in person, allowing him to make a custom shade and shape that is unique to you and your smile.
Best of all, veneers are relatively non-invasive as compared to other options such as crowns and bridges.
