Are Dental Veneers an Option for your Smile Makeover?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you may be considering the options available for a smile makeover. While some dental flaws can be fixed with cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening or composite fillings, larger issues may be best addressed with dental veneers.

Chipped, stained, unevenly spaced or discolored teeth can be corrected with dental veneers in as little as one or two visits to your cosmetic dentist. The placement of veneers is a fairly simple procedure that can immediately restore your beautiful smile.

There are two types of veneers to consider for your smile makeover:

  • Composite veneers utilize resin that is applied and sculpted in layers to the teeth. Composite veneers are created in your dentist’s office, and can be applied in one day. With composite veneers, the structure of the tooth is in no way altered, making them easy to remove and replace if necessary. Composite veneers can be expected to last four to eight years.
  • Porcelain veneers utilize ceramic material that can be closely matched to the shade and appearance of your natural teeth. With porcelain veneers, a thin shell of porcelain is custom-made in a dental lab. Your teeth are then prepared by removing a layer of enamel, and the veneers are adhered to the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are a permanent option, and can last many years before they will need to be replaced.

Modern dental technology means that dental veneers look more natural than ever, and can provide a quick, dramatic improvement to your smile. If you are seeking a smile makeover to improve your less than perfect smile, dental veneers may be your best option.
