What are Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers or just veneers are thin, shell-like restorations that can be bonded to the surface of the enamel to improve and enhance its appearance. Porcelain veneers can be custom-made from advanced porcelain material that would closely resemble the patient’s natural teeth. Today we use veneers for several cosmetic corrections that range from teeth whitening to orthodontic adjustments.
Dental veneers, or laminates, are thin porcelain shells designed to look like your natural teeth. When fitted over the front side of your teeth, they can be used to help conceal virtually any cosmetic flaw. Because they offer an easier way to repair minor cosmetic problems, restore lost structure, change the contour or length of your teeth, or instantly whiten your smile, veneers can be an attractive alternative to cosmetic bonding.
Anyone with teeth that need significant work to correct shape, contour, or color could be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Dr. Rahimi-Thornton can use dental veneers to repair existing teeth, reduce the space between them, and create a totally natural result. Your teeth can also be shortened or lengthened using porcelain veneers. The veneer works to strengthen the existing tooth. Once a veneer is applied, it looks and feels exactly like your natural teeth.
Whether you choose to have Dr. Rahimi-Thornton use porcelain veneers on a single tooth, a few select teeth, or your entire smile, you’ll be astounded at the beautiful, natural-looking results!
When it comes to improving your smile, one of the best fixes is with the aid of dental veneers. Veneers are easily placed over your existing teeth, so no extractions or teeth removals are necessary. This helps keep pain levels down, in addition to recovery time. In fact, when you leave our dentist office after the final veneers are in place, you’ll be ready to show off your brilliant new smile. If you want to know more about dental veneers, want to discuss pricing, and are curious about whether veneers are right for you, now is the perfect time to reserve your appointment.
