In dentistry, a veneer resembles a wafer-thin piece of material that is placed over the teeth to improve appearance and protect the tooth from becoming worn down. In order to qualify for the placement of Veneers, your dentist first must do an initial consultation and see if you are a candidate. If you are, then the next step is for the dentist to remove .5mm of your tooth surface in order to fit the veneers properly (evenly with your existing teeth). The porcelain veneers shell structure is then bonded to the surface of the teeth. With veneers you have the ability to change their color, shape, size or length to help you get the perfect smile you are looking for. Typically, Veneers are used for treating tooth discoloration, worn down teeth, chipped or broken teeth, misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth, and teeth with gaps. Porcelain veneers are very sturdy and most importantly very esthetic. They do not stain like your natural teeth or composite (white filling material). Thus, you can keep your smile nice and bright all seasons long. Veneers range in cost, depending on the type of veneers and the experience of the dental technician.. Veneers are a quick, efficient and beautiful way to improve your smile instantly, and never have to worry about imperfections again!
