Benefits of veneers
Not everyone is born with a perfect smile. Your teeth may be slightly crooked, be uneven lengths, or have small gaps. You may develop deep staining that will not respond to teeth whitening treatments or get small chips or cracks on your teeth. Veneers are crafted to cover the front of your teeth and hide these little imperfections discreetly, so you can be proud to show off your teeth.
Veneers require very little preparation, and they can address these cosmetic issues in one or two visits to the dentist. With proper care, your restorations can last anywhere from 5-15 years or longer, and in some cases, they can strengthen teeth with worn enamel.
Composite vs. Porcelain veneers
Composite veneers are made from dental bonding during your appointment, and they don’t require removing enamel. The dentist will polish the treatment area to help the composite bond to your tooth and apply the veneers once your teeth are ready. They are more affordable than porcelain, however, they are not quite as sturdy as porcelain and don’t always last as long.
Traditional veneers require removing a portion of your enamel, and if you remove the veneers and don’t replace them, you may have increased sensitivity in your teeth. We offer patients no-prep porcelain veneers, which only require a minimal amount of enamel to be removed, for quicker appointments. Once the teeth are prepped, the dentist will create impressions of your teeth using dental molding and send them to the lab, where they will craft your restorations. Once they are ready, you can return to the office to have them bonded into place.
