Dental Veneers Create Beautiful Smiles

If you have ever wondered how so many celebrities or beauty queens have such perfect, bright teeth chances are they have dental veneers.  Veneers are thin shells of porcelain tooth-like material that are adhesively bonded to the tooth and are used to repair damaged teeth or simply beautify one’s smile.  The process of manufacturing veneers is fairly tedious but the results can be amazing.  Because all veneers are custom made for each tooth that they replace, your cosmetic dentist must be skilled in the art of fabricating them so that they look and feel natural in a patient’s mouth.  This is why it is so important to choose a qualified cosmetic dentist who is experienced in blending art and science for the ultimate in looks and functionality.

Before the veneers are placed, the dentist temporarily places them for look and feel. If any adjustments need to be made this is the time because when they are ready to be permanently placed a strong adhesive bond will be used.

What kinds of problems do veneers fix?

Besides creating beautiful and perfect smiles, many patients receive veneers to fix common dental problems such as:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Spaced teeth

Veneers are made to look and feel natural and the porcelain material used very much resembles that of your natural teeth. They are even matched for color and shade of your existing teeth so that you have a uniform mouth. Veneers are very stain resistant and allow you to eat and drink whatever you like. Veneers can be used for multiple teeth or just the problem areas.
