You may associate veneers with a beautiful smile, and rightly so. But how much do you actually know about this treatment? Many patients recognize that porcelain veneers offer a wide array of cosmetic benefits but are not quite sure what veneers are, or whether they qualify for this dental service. Learn more about the ins and outs of this cosmetic treatment to find out if it offers you the smile improvements you have been dreaming about.

Veneers Look Natural

Unlike dental crowns, which cover your entire tooth, veneers only cover the visible portion of your teeth. They are crafted out of super-thin layers of porcelain, much like your own teeth, which are composed of translucent tissue layers. You will agree upon preferences with us, according to the improvements you desire, such as a whiter smile and improved tooth shape. The veneers will let your natural teeth gently shine through for a completely natural appearance.

They Offer Several Treatment In One

Patients who require a variety of cosmetic treatments often opt for porcelain veneers. This is because veneers offer a long list of aesthetic improvements, commonly addressing problems that would otherwise require several procedures. Potential improvements include the following:

  • A whiter, brighter smile
  • The appearance of improved alignment
  • Filled in spaces between teeth for a gap-free smile
  • Camouflaging of cracks and chips
  • Uniform tooth length
  • Teeth shaped to complement your features

Treatment Requires Only Two Visits

Such a dramatic smile improvement may seem like it requires several visits, but in most cases, you will only need to schedule two appointments. During your first visit, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and take impressions of your teeth. During your second visit, we will temporarily place the veneers to make any final adjustments and then permanently bond them to your teeth for your newly improved smile.
