Are dental veneers right for you? Veneers are just one of the services offered by a cosmetic dentist. Once only thought of as a procedure for celebrities and the wealthy, veneers are now available for almost everyone. There are many imperfections – minor and major – that veneers can correct.

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discoloration or stained teeth
  • Gaps

Not only will veneers fix these problems, they can also change the shape of your teeth to make your smile more attractive. Many people have teeth that are uneven from tooth grinding or general wear and tear. Your teeth may be irregularly shaped or spaced due to genetics. Facial features are better supported when teeth are properly shaped. Improper spacing and worn teeth may increase with age. When you have dental veneers, these problems will be a thing of the past.


The process of dental veneers

The process consists of covering the front surface of your teeth with a wafer-thin shell made of porcelain or specialized dental materials. These shells are permanently bonded to your natural teeth. Not only do veneers give you beautiful teeth – but they also protect the surface of damaged teeth. You may avoid more extensive dental treatments when you have veneers.

Dental veneers are durable. You will be able to care for your dental implants just as you would your original teeth. Eating what you normally would is no problem with dental veneers.

You will begin the process with a consultation to evaluate treatment options. He or she will help you decide the perfect shape and color for your fresh look.

Your dental professionals will make an impression of your teeth that will be sent to a dental laboratory – or may be made right in your dentist’s office. Using the mold, your veneers will be designed with all of the specifications you and your dentist have discussed.

When you have completed the process, and your new smile is in place, your dentist will advise you on the proper care of your veneers. Even though you will care for your teeth as you would your natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.


Your cosmetic dentist will be able to determine if you are a candidate for veneers. When you have completed the process of getting your veneers, you will be surprised when you have a look in the mirror. You will see that the crooked, cracked or discolored teeth you once saw are replaced by straight, white and well-shaped teeth. You will no longer cover your mouth when you smile, and you will want to share it whenever you can.
