Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a great tool to improve your smile at any age and offer immediate results.  Veneers can be used for an impressive number of cosmetic corrections, ranging from teeth whitening to orthodontic adjustments.

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.

Few cosmetic dental treatments offer the comprehensive results and aesthetic benefits that veneers can provide. In one treatment, veneers can correct surface flaws such as chips and cracks well as change the shape of teeth, often making these enhancements an ideal solution for patients with proportionately small, worn, irregularly shaped, or pointed teeth.

Call and schedule your consultation today if you are having the below issues:

  • Teeth that are discolored — either because of root canal treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Teeth that are chipped or broken
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
  • Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
