Hello, and welcome to our Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Centers cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are commonly used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.
If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to make the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.
Since a minuscule layer of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be attached, this dental service is usually irreversible.
Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Centers offers all the procedures you need to achieve a spectacular smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile redesigns, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.
