Veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain or composite that can be placed on the visible surface of a tooth to enhance its appearance. An increasing number of people are opting for veneers to improve their smile due to their versatility and simplicity.
Veneers have a wide range of applications. They can be used for the following purposes:
- Reshaping Misshapen or Small Teeth
Misshapen teeth can ruin your beautiful smile. Veneers can be placed over the misshapen teeth to give them a perfect appearance.
- Permanently brightening discolored and stained teeth
Veneers are a great way to give you a shining, pearly-white smile by masking stains. They can give you a natural-looking, long-lasting white smile.
- Elimination of gaps and spacing between the teeth
Veneers can help eliminate any excess spacing between your teeth with a quick, non-invasive procedure that requires only a couple of visits to our dental office.
- Restoration of Chipped Teeth
If you have chipped or cracked teeth, veneers are a pleasant-looking and virtually painless way to fix your smile.
- Correcting the alignment of slightly crooked teeth
If your teeth are slightly misaligned and you do not wish to wear braces, in some cases, veneers can be used to correct your smile.
Since they are ultra-thin, veneers are virtually undetectable and perfectly resemble a healthy, white tooth enamel. Veneers are also resistant to stains caused by tobacco use and beverages such as wine, tea and coffee. Veneers are highly durable, and with proper care, they can last for up to a decade.
