Dental veneers are one of the fastest ways to get a perfect smile. Tooth whitening, dental bonding, and minor straightening can all improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, they only address one issue at a time. Veneers can address several cosmetic issues to give you the smile you have always dreamed of.
Dental veneers are thin wafers of material bonded to the front of your teeth to change the color, shape and size of your teeth. Custom-designed and semi-translucent, your veneers match the look and feel of your natural teeth – only better.
Veneers may be the right choice if you want to:
Dental 311 offers several types of dental veneers. Each type of veneer offers its own advantages.
Porcelain veneers are the most common type of dental veneers. These tooth-colored veneers are versatile, easy to customize, and typically last 10 to 15 years. Made of a ceramic material, porcelain veneers resist stains better than composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are also biocompatible, so they won’t irritate gum tissue and other soft tissues within your mouth.
Composite veneers are made of a mixture of inorganic and organic materials, which is the same material dentists use to fill cavities. Unlike porcelain veneers that cannot be repaired if the veneer chips, composite veneers can be repaired.
Also known as dental laminates, laminate veneers are made of a combination of porcelain and composite materials. Laminate veneers are much thinner than porcelain veneers, so they require very little tooth preparation.
While you didn’t get to choose the teeth you were born with, dental veneers give you another chance to create a stunningly beautiful smile. Perfectly sculpted to create the smile of your dreams, dental veneers are not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Natural teeth tend to lose their original luster over time, leaving you with dull, discolored teeth. Made from high-grade materials, veneers never fade.
Natural tooth enamel can absorb stain-making compounds in certain foods and drinks, such as berries and coffee. Dental veneers resist even the strongest stain-makers to keep your teeth their whitest and brightest.
Veneers are one of the fastest ways to achieve a perfect smile. In fact, you can complete your smile makeover in just a few short and pain-free visits.
Dental veneers are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth – except veneers look better. In fact, the only things people will notice is that you tend to smile more than ever and that your smile looks amazing.
