What are dental veneers? 
This cosmetic dentistry procedure uses wafer-thin, tooth-colored shells of porcelain placed over the surface of the teeth to cover imperfections. The veneer itself is created in a dental laboratory based on a mold of your mouth. Before placing the veneers, your Easton dentist must first prepare your teeth. This process involves shaving a tiny amount of enamel from the front of the teeth to make room for the veneer, giving the restoration a roughened surface on which to attach. The laboratory step requires several weeks, during which you will probably wear temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth.

What can dental veneers do for me? 
Dental veneers are versatile, allowing your dentist to correct many different imperfections in your teeth. Some common issues veneers repair include:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • heavily discolored teeth which do not respond to teeth whitening procedures
  • stained teeth
  • misshapen teeth
  • slightly overlapped or gapped teeth

Though dental veneers fix many problems, they cannot take the place of other necessary dental treatments. Great candidates for veneers do not require more aggressive orthodontic treatment like braces and have healthy, decay-free teeth with no signs of gum disease.

The Benefits of Dental Veneers
The most obvious benefit of dental veneers is the new, beautiful smile they provide. Feeling great about your smile benefits you psychologically by boosting your confidence. Veneers also correct bite issues in some cases and provide an even chewing and biting surface. Additionally, the materials which make up a porcelain veneer have the same light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth but are resistant to staining. This ensures your smile stays bright and beautiful for years to come.
