Dental Conditions Treated with Veneers
Dental veneers are very thin shells that are placed over your natural teeth, and they are typically made from porcelain. They are designed to cover a tooth for improved aesthetics, and they are bonded to the natural tooth. Veneers are used to treat a wide array of dental concerns- here are some of the most common reasons our patients choose this option:
Benefits of Veneers
- Discolored teeth: Tooth discoloration is extremely common, and veneers offer a great solution. Sometimes whitening treatments simply can't match your other teeth perfectly, and veneers can be custom made to match with the surrounding teeth. They are so thin that it really looks and feels like your natural tooth as well.
- Broken teeth: If you have chipped or broken your tooth, veneers can make your smile look whole again without a full tooth replacement. While sometimes replacement is needed based on the break, many patients can simply cover it up with a durable porcelain veneer.
- Oddly shaped or misaligned teeth: If you have a tooth that is naturally misaligned to the rest of your teeth, or that has an odd shape, you can have a custom veneer created to even things out.
- Gaps: You can also use veneers to fill any gaps you may have between teeth. Again, many patients simply prefer to have the gaps filled for a smile that they love!
Veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure, and our team will help make the process easy. Our dentist will first remove a thin layer of the enamel on the affected tooth to make room for your veneer. Then, we will take a mold of your tooth so that a custom porcelain veneer can be created to fit your tooth perfectly. Once your veneer is available, your dentist will fit and bond it to your tooth, and you'll be able to use it just like your natural teeth!
