Restore the Beauty of Your Smile With Veneers

The color of your teeth might be due to an intrinsic (internal) issue with your teeth that a simple whitening process will not fix. Sometimes, no matter how much you work at it, a stain refuses to come off the surface of a tooth.  

In other cases, a chipped or otherwise damaged tooth may stick out like a sore thumb every time you smile.

Fear not—even these daunting dental issues have a fix. Dental veneers may represent the best solution if you have a stubborn tooth stain, visible chips or unsightly gaps or spaces in your smile.

What Is a Dental Veneer?

A dental veneer is most commonly used for a smile makeover. On a basic level, dental veneers are a tooth-colored covering for your teeth that restore the ideal shape and desired color of your natural teeth and help preserve oral health.

The veneer procedure often becomes necessary when there is some form of irreversible damage to your tooth enamel, causing a stain that will not whiten or a large fractured or damaged area. As thin porcelain coverings, dental veneers can strengthen tooth structure and act as a teeth whitening cosmetic dental procedure.

For some, dental veneers represent a way to restore the original beauty of their smile. For others, dental veneers can enable patients to transform the appearance of their teeth however they desire. After being cemented in place veneers function the same as your natural teeth.

How Does the Process Work?

Once you set your appointment and arrive at the dental office, the dental procedure will involve shaping, fabricating, and fitting your porcelain veneers. The crucial part of a veneer procedure arises in veneer placement, where your dentist will carefully affix the veneers to your teeth with dental adhesive to ensure a comfortable and functional fit.

As fabrication takes place before final veneer placement can occur, your dentist will fabricate and place temporary veneers to cover those stains or chips until the final porcelain veneers are fabricated by a dental technician.

Are Dental Veneers Right for Me?

Damaged enamel does not have one solution. We recommend consulting with us to evaluate your treatment options and see if dental veneers are right for you. We are happy to answer questions and to be a resource for you with any concerns.

Your dental insurance may cover some of your procedure for dental veneers. As with any other process, however, we recommend checking with your insurance policy to determine their policy to offset the cost of veneers.

Dental veneers do not involve invasive or painful processes, and they can help restore your smile to what it once was. We stand committed to our patients by restoring their confidence in their smiles safely while keeping them comfortable.
