Veneers are all the rage as a modern way to completely revolutionize your smile. Maybe you have seen the before and after pictures of veneers that show how dramatically they can change a smile. You may be wondering how veneers work and if they might be a good solution for your dental goals.
What Is a Veneer?
A veneer is a thin piece of material, usually made of porcelain, custom-shaped by a cosmetic dentist to fit the shape of the patient's mouth and teeth. Veneers create a natural look once the dentist puts the veneer in place on top of the surface of a tooth.
The porcelain veneer will create the appearance of a straight, white, and perfectly shaped tooth. When veneers are placed on every showing tooth, they can completely change a smile.
Veneers can address issues like:
- Correcting the appearance of misshapen teeth
- Cracked, pitted, or otherwise damaged teeth
- The appearance of crooked teeth
- Permanent cosmetic issues, like deep stains
How Does the Dentist Apply a Veneer?
The dentist will first remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth to bond the veneer on top. The veneer will rest naturally on the surface of the tooth, completely altering its appearance.
Veneers are a permanent way to create a movie star smile, even for people who might have thought it was impossible for them.
