What Can Veneers Do For Your Smile?

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that the dentist places across the existing tooth to change the appearance completely. It requires that the dentist remove a thin enamel layer to place the veneer, so the procedure is permanent. Still, it is less invasive than other procedures like crowns, which can produce a similar cosmetic result.

A veneer can reshape the appearance of a tooth, smooth out its surface, and create a bright white smile.

They can also:

  • Fix the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Improve pitted, cracked, chipped, and stained teeth 
  • Hide the yellowing and darkening of teeth that occurs with age
  • Straighten the appearance of the patient's smile
  • Give the patient bright white teeth that are more stain-resistant for a bright white smile that lasts

Who Are Dental Veneers Good For?

If you are a patient looking for a minimally invasive way to correct cosmetic dentistry issues, the chances are that a veneer can be an excellent solution to the problem.

There are certain things that your dentist will likely want to take care of before they would recommend veneers. Issues like cavities should be corrected before the dentist can put a veneer on the tooth. 

Issues like periodontal disease will prevent patients from using dental veneers. However, it may still be a viable solution for improving the appearance of a patient's teeth once treatment for the issue is complete.

Most adult patients are good candidates for dental veneers.
