Veneers are typically made of a very thin shell of ceramic porcelain, and can protect your teeth from minor chips and cracks. Veneers are the treatment of choice for discoloring, staining, crooked or misshapen teeth. They are useful for making minor corrections in the shape of the teeth and improvements in their color. They provide a smooth, clean and white surface that can be matched to the color of the underlying tooth for a natural look and improved smile. They also can offer supportive protection for patients who have insufficient natural tooth enamel.
Because less reduction is needed in the underlying tooth, porcelain veneers enable the dentist to preserve the structure of the tooth and the procedure is less invasive than crowns. We have two types of veneers, including ceramic veneers and resin based composite veneers. Veneers improve the appearance of the teeth and improve confidence.Like other restorative dentistry work, veneers should be cared for just as you would natural teeth, with frequent and regular brushing, flossing and cleaning.
