What Are Veneers?
Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain. These ceramic shells are built to fit over your natural teeth, and help cover up flaws like stains, chips, and more. They are usually only applied to the front teeth.
Because veneers are made out of a ceramic material, they can’t become stained. They also match the color and shape of natural teeth perfectly. Your veneers will be indistinguishable from real teeth. Veneers also require minimal care, and have a longer lifespan compared to other cosmetic treatments like dental bonding.
What can venners fix?
Tooth Staining And Discoloration
Veneers are great for tough tooth stains that may not be treatable with whitening alone. With a set of veneers, you can cover up deep stains and enjoy a bright, beautiful smile.
If your teeth are worn from teeth grinding or just wear and tear, veneers can help restore their natural shape and appearance.
Chipped, Broken, Or Irregularly-Shaped Teeth
If you have a chipped, broken, or irregularly-shaped tooth, veneers can cover it up and restore your appearance. However, veneers can only be used on healthy teeth. Serious chips and damage may require a dental crown, or even other treatment like root canal therapy.
Teeth Misalignment And Gapping
Veneers can cover up your teeth and treat minor misalignments and gaps in your teeth. This enhances your appearance and provides you with a more balanced smile. However, if you have serious alignment or gaps in your teeth, you may require orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect or a similar treatment.
Yes. Veneers are considered to be a permanent, irreversible procedure. This is because a thin layer of enamel must be removed from each tooth that’s getting a veneer. This is done to make room for the veneers, and ensure they don’t add bulk to your teeth. This process is not reversible. While your teeth will be just as strong once you get your veneers, they would be significantly weaker if you ever had your veneers removed. This means that you will need to keep your veneers for the rest of your life.
