A Closer Look at Dental Veneers

Are you less than satisfied with the state of your current smile? Perhaps one or a few teeth are deeply discoloured, chipped, cracked, or wonky? These are situations which can be addressed through the use of dental veneers.

How do veneers function? What benefits can they provide and how will the process itself take place? Let us answer these three logical questions.

Dental Veneers 101

Dental veneers are hard and ultra-thin shells created of porcelain. They will be bonded to the surfaces of your teeth. They can be custom made to provide a flawless appearance and they are often used to mask small imperfections. Veneers may also be employed to correct minor alignment issues.

After you consult with one of our dentists, he or she will determine whether veneers will work for your situation. You will need an examination and possibly x-rays.

If you are a good candidate, the veneers are then prepared and permanently affixed to your teeth. If cared for properly, they are able to last for decades at a time with few maintenance procedures.

Veneers are an excellent Cosmetic Dentistry option to consider, so speak with a professional if you hope to learn more.
