Learn More About Getting Veneers

In general dentistry, veneers is a solid, porcelain layer of thin material typically applied over an existing tooth. Veneers protect the surface of the tooth and can even enhance the appearance of a beautiful smile. Veneers are custom-made, thin laminates, which are then bonded onto the tooth surface. Porcelain veneers are also available as composite veneers which combine the benefits of porcelain veneers with those of composite bonding. Do you want to learn more? Visit Veneers.

Veneers may be used for many different purposes including correcting teeth problems, enhancing the look of one’s smile, correcting gaps in teeth, closing small gaps, and restoring normal alignment of teeth. Veneers may be used on any sized tooth to correct any tooth problem. Veneers are designed to be used over the existing tooth to repair any tooth abnormality, such as a gap or other imperfection, which may require the placement of multiple crowns. Typically, when a patient has one or more missing teeth, he or she may choose to replace all of the missing teeth with one or multiple veneers, or have the entire tooth replaced.

If you want to learn more about getting veneers, it is important that you find a qualified cosmetic dentist who will determine what level of veneers will be appropriate for you. Typically dentists perform a series of assessments to determine whether or not veneers are the best option for your situation. During these assessments, the dentist will take photographs of your teeth so he or she can accurately create a custom-made veneer for you. There are many advantages to using a high quality dentist to perform the procedure; if you have teeth that are crooked, damaged, cracked, or severely worn, your dentist can create a way to repair the problems with the perfect materials for your teeth. By choosing a quality dentist who is skilled at creating the right veneers, you can ensure that you will get the smile you desire.
