What are Veneers?
Veneers are extremely thin laminate covers that are placed over the front of teeth to conceal imperfections. Commonly made from porcelain and crafted to look like thin shells, veneers readily blend into your smile for a naturally beautiful look.
Benefits of Veneers
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth with a variety of imperfections, including:
- Stains or discolorations
- Chipped or cracked areas
- Crooked or oddly-shaped
- Rough or uneven surfaces
- Small gaps between teeth
Veneers perform this action with a natural look, as well Here at our Columbia dental office, the veneers we use are made from porcelain, a material that looks strikingly similar to tooth enamel. Additionally, the size, shape, and color of each veneer are customized for its respective tooth. Customizing the size, shape, and color allows for the best fit and the most natural look possible.
An additional benefit of veneers is that they are permanent. A dental adhesive is used to affix each veneer to the front surface of its corresponding tooth. Cementing the veneers to the teeth means you will not have to worry about the veneers staying in place when eating, drinking, or speaking. Furthermore, they are easy to care for. In fact, you can brush and floss your teeth in the same exact manner as before!
