Dental veneers are a great, long-lasting solution for those who have irreversible discoloration or damage that has been done to a tooth that is impacting the overall appearance of their smile. Our smiles have a huge impact on first impressions, and feeling self-conscious about even one tooth can heavily impact our ability to confidently meet people. Veneers provide a natural, beautiful option to elevate the appearance of the smile for many patients every single day.

What are dental veneers?


Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that is used to conceal imperfections in the teeth such as chips, cracks, stains, and more. They are thin shells that are permanently placed over the surface of the specific tooth to provide the appearance of a perfect tooth as a result. There are several different types of veneers that dentists or patients can choose from depending on their specific needs or goals, differing in material with most being made from porcelain or resin-composite materials. The material that is chosen will impact the cost of the procedure, but more importantly, will affect the final appearance of the teeth as it is often chosen based on what will appear to be the most natural alongside the existing teeth. The sign of good quality veneers is their ability to appear natural when seen as part of a cohesive, beautiful smile.

Who needs dental veneers?


Dental veneers are a great option for anyone who wishes to enhance the appearance of their teeth and they are particularly effective at improving the appearance of broken, cracked, or chipped teeth, spaces or gaps between the teeth, misshapen or disproportionate teeth, and teeth with permanent staining or discoloration. While they can improve a number of cosmetic concerns with individual teeth, they are not recommended for everyone, especially for those who have cosmetic concerns that are caused by underlying dental issues including gum disease or cavities. There are many different cosmetic dental options that are used to treat varying concerns, and veneers are typically the best option for those who want to keep their natural teeth but have irreversible discoloration or damage that would safely be camouflaged with a permanent shell to allow that one tooth to fit in and be more cosmetically appealing within the overall smile.

What are the advantages of dental veneers?


There are several advantages to having veneers placed as a cosmetic solution for those who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile due to specific teeth. Veneers are strong shells that are placed over the teeth, providing even more strength to the existing tooth that is more resistant to staining and cavities than the natural teeth. This makes veneers very low maintenance as they only require the same amount of care as your natural teeth (regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups). One of the biggest reasons patients and dentists will choose veneers is due to their ability to look and feel natural. The veneer itself is very thin, so it only requires minor enamel removal in order to be properly fitted onto the teeth, and can be easily customized to provide an incredibly natural appearance, to the point where the vast majority of people will not realize it is not your natural tooth. The results provided by veneers are subtle but will vastly enhance the appearance of the smile by allowing the previous problem tooth to fit in beautifully with the rest of the natural teeth.

Are veneers permanent?


Veneers are intended to be a permanent cosmetic dental procedure as they require the removal of a small layer of the enamel of the problem tooth in order to be properly fitted to provide a natural result. This removal of the enamel is as minimal as possible but does affect the integrity of the natural tooth if left uncovered by the veneer, so once you have prepped the tooth for the veneer, it will require some sort of cover or barrier moving forward. Depending on the material that is used for the veneer, most veneers will last around 10 to 15 years before needing to be replaced. This means that when properly cared for, veneers can last for years to come without any significant maintenance, often lasting longer than the surrounding natural teeth.
