What are dental veneers?
Dental Veneers are wafer-thin, semi-translucent facings that bond securely to the fronts of your teeth. Dental Veneers are durable, stain-resistant, and natural looking. Usually made of porcelain, they are custom designed by your dentist specifically for your teeth, fabricated at a specialty lab and then bonded to your teeth.
Why choose dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a safe and effective method of concealing broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, and misshapen teeth. Often only a very tiny amount of your tooth is removed to apply the veneers. Crowns may require a significant amount of tooth removal before application. Dental veneers can also be used to fill gaps and spaces between teeth.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Veneers?
Anyone with healthy teeth and a normal bite can consider dental veneers. If you have any cavities or peridontal disease, these must be addressed first. An initial consultation is recommended so that Dr. Vetter may complete a thorough examination of your teeth and make the best recommendation for you.
Advantages of Dental Veneers
They look natural and beautiful. They are also extrememly durable. So durable in fact, if there were trauma to the tooth, it is more likely the tooth would facture before the bond of the veneer. And using today’s adhesive technologies, they can last for years.
Disadvantages of Dental Veneers
Once applied, they are final. You will not be able to remove them. Therefore it is very important to have them designed by an experienced qualified cosmetic dentist to ensure they match the rest of your teeth and your expectations.
