If you’ve ever looked at someone and marvelled at how their smile looks – the way their teeth are perfectly shaped and colored, it’s probably good to know that they have had some work done to their teeth. In dentistry, there are many different cosmetic dentistry options that work to improve the look of your teeth, either in shape and color. These methods can include professional teeth whitening, bonding, and crowns, to name a few. Of these methods, only one method allows you to change both shape and color in a single treatment: veneers. When properly used, they can transform your smile in a way that looks simultaneously beautiful and healthy, so that you can be proud of your smile whenever you look in the mirror.
Veneers are a set of thin, porcelain shells that fit onto the front of your teeth. Acting as an extra layer to your teeth, veneers are able to fix any imperfections in the shape of your teeth. No matter if you have chipped or cracked teeth, unsightly fillings, teeth that are stained, veneers address all these issues. Since it’s an extra layer attached to your teeth, we can shape the veneers to the exact specifications to achieve a specific result. The result is perfectly shaped teeth that look like no work has been done to them at all!
The process of getting veneers is simple, requiring only two visits. In the first appointment, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where your veneers will be crafted. On your second visit, we’ll adhere the veneers to your teeth, removing a very small portion of your tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. After that, you’re all done, with a brilliantly beautiful smile to show for it.
