Dental veneers are the instant answer when you’re looking for a completely new smile. A veneer is a restoration that goes directly over the front of your natural tooth, leaving it as if there is a completely new tooth in place. When you place several veneers side-by-side across the front of your mouth, you have what looks like a new smile in absolutely no time. 

There are a few types of veneers available, with the most common being Porcelain and Minimal-Prep veneers. Each type of veneer has different advantages and appearances than the other. Minimal-Prep veneers are completely reversible and are slightly translucent as they are bonded directly onto the natural tooth surface. Porcelain veneers provide the most dramatic color change, and are cemented onto slightly adjusted tooth surfaces. 

Veneers are typically used to make teeth look:

  • Straighter
  • Whiter
  • Brighter
  • To adjust tooth size, location, or gaps between the teeth 

Depending on the type of veneer you choose, your treatment may take one to two visits. On the visit that your veneers are bonded into place, you’ll walk into your dentist’s office and out with a completely brand-new smile. 

If you’ve been thinking about changing the way your teeth look but aren’t sure what to do, you ought to ask your dentist about veneers. Veneers are perfect for people that don’t need any dental treatment, or have very few corrective needs when it comes to damaged teeth. Since they are placed on the front of the teeth, veneers are designed to withstand long-term use and give you years of results that leave you looking for opportunities to smile all day long.
