In today’s world, there is no reason you should have to settle with having stained, chipped, crooked or poorly shaped teeth.

The placement of veneers will result in a magic smile that is sure give you an immediate boost of confidence.
Veneers are generally considered a favorable option to having a crown, as the veneer is able to correct most cosmetic issues with the tooth. Veneers are favored over crowns due to the minimal shaping that needs to take place with the tooth as compared to the major reshaping required prior to installing a crown. Porcelain Veneers are made from a thin sheet of tooth colored material and are placed on the front side of your defective tooth.
Your dentist will take an impression of the tooth and then send it to a lab where a technician will prepare the veneer to fit precisely to your tooth. A small amount of enamel may need to be removed before the veneer is installed. Once the veneer is installed it is considered to be quite durable. Veneers are definitely considered more durable than bonding but could possible see minor chipping or possibly staining. Your dentist may recommend that you avoid liquids that stain such as tea, coffee, or red wine. Contact us today to learn more about Veneers and Porcelain Veneers.
