Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored coverings that are attached and cover the front surface of teeth (visible while smiling) to improve their appearance. They are often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to the teeth.
Veneers can be used to treat a number of different cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.
The biggest benefit to veneers is it improves the appearance of the teeth, lending a brighter and relatively even smile. Dental veneers are often used to treat the following cosmetic occurrences:
• Broken or chipped teeth • Severe discoloration or uneven coloring that can’t be fixed with whitening • Gaps in the teeth • Smaller-than-average teeth • Pointed or unusually shaped teeth
Veneers are a semi permanent investment one can make to achieve a confident and brighter smile.
Dental veneers are most commonly made out of porcelain. Applying traditional dental veneers typically involves grinding down the tooth structure, sometimes removing some of the tooth even past the enamel. This allows for proper placement, but it’s also an irreversible procedure that may at times be painful to go through and often requires a local anesthetic.
No-prep veneers, on the other hand, may require some tooth preparation or alteration, but these alterations are minimal. Instead of removing layers of tooth under the enamel, no-prep veneers only affect the enamel. In many cases, no-prep veneers don’t require local anesthetics.
