What can Dental Veneers Do?

Posted in Veneers

Veneers are one of the most straightforward ways to enhance your smile in a short period of time. Unlike going through lengthier, more time-involved treatments, dental veneers typically take only two visits to complete and can change everything from:

  • The color of your teeth
  • How straight your teeth look
  • Size and shape of the teeth
  • Discolorations and stains
  • Chips, gaps, and worn edges

How are dental veneers able to do so many things with just one treatment? Because they simply cover the front of your tooth, not the entire tooth. Each thin porcelain shell is carefully crafted by hand to fit side-by-side with other veneers so that you’re left with an absolutely perfect smile. They’re like having crowns, but only one side of the tooth is covered instead of the tooth as a whole.

Each veneer is strong enough to withstand normal use, so you can rest assured knowing that it will last for several years. Most people prefer to have veneers completed in pairs, focusing on 4, 6, or even 8 teeth across the front of the mouth (depending on the level of aesthetic services needed.) They can also be used in combination with other types of cosmetic treatments like whitening, bonding, or gum recontouring. It’s all up to what you want to achieve!

If you’re not sure whether or not veneers can help you have the smile that you really want, you’re only a consult away from finding out. Your dentist can help you decide which options are best for you and even give you a proposed model of what your completed treatment will actually look like. Book your consult today!
