Which Dental Veneer is Right for Me?

Posted in Veneers

Dental veneers can give you the perfect smile in just a few easy steps. One of the greatest benefits of veneers is that they literally change your smile right before your very eyes. Transforming dark, misshapen or crowded teeth into a beautiful straight smile has never been easier.  But, how do you know which type of veneer is right for you?

Porcelain Veneers

For dramatic results, porcelain veneers are a great option. Each veneer is customized in a dental lab according to your preferences. Because they are porcelain, they provide more significant color changes for a huge impact. The process involves prepping the teeth, taking an impression and wearing temporary covers while the veneers are made. In about two weeks the permanent veneers are ready to bond to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are non-reversible. 

No-Prep Veneers

No-prep veneers are a reversible form of dental veneers. They do not require alteration to your tooth enamel. If you ever want to have them removed one day, you can do so without having to replace them with another restoration. These thinner veneers offer a more translucent appearance, making your teeth look as natural as possible. No-prep veneers are typically made in a brand-specific lab and come in selective varieties for you to choose from.

Your dentist can help you decide which veneer is ideal for your individual smile. You will discuss the pros and cons to each treatment as it relates to the health of your teeth and what you want to achieve. Veneers are the simplest, quickest ways to enjoy a straighter, whiter, natural looking smile. Call your dentist today for more information!
