Most people think of dental veneers as being used to cover old, stained, or misshapen teeth. While this is correct, dental veneers are used for many more things aside from cosmetic purposes. Dental veneers can be used to fix chipped or cracked teeth, or teeth that are worn down because of age, medical procedures, or medications.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a thin shell of customized, tooth-colored material. They are specifically created to cover the front of your teeth, restoring both their function and appearance. Veneers are also called laminates, and they can be made from porcelain or composite resin materials. The best type of material will be determined by our team, based on what types of problems the veneers will be fixing.
Veneers typically require three appointments to be created and placed. The first appointment will involve a consultation with us to determine the placement of the veneers, the type of material to be used, and to assure that the damaged teeth do not require further procedures before veneers should be applied. The second appointment will be for the process of creating the veneers, and the third appointment will involve placing the veneers and bonding them to your teeth. Veneers are an affordable way to fix a tooth that is minorly chipped or cracked and does not need other procedures to ensure the health of the tooth. Even a prominent front tooth can be fixed with a veneer to look as though the tooth was never chipped or cracked in the first place. With proper care and attention, veneers can last for many years before needing a replacement.
If you have a chipped or cracked tooth that you believe may be fixed by a dental veneer, please give us a call today. Our knowledgeable team can get you on your way back to a winning smile.
