Most of what we do for you has both a cosmetic component and a restorative component but focusing on the former to make your smile look better is what makes it Cosmetic Dentistry. To achieve a better smile we use certain advanced methods including fillings, crowns, bridgework, tooth whitening, and veneers.
Veneers are purely cosmetic and are a fantastic way to beautify your front teeth.
Veneers are very thin facings fitted to the front of your teeth, made out of porcelain to create the smile you want.
Situations we can treat with veneers are:
They have a “life like” appearance with the strength, beauty, and durability only porcelain restorations can deliver. Veneers do not require the extensive grinding of tooth structure that caps do, yet they accomplish a lifelike aesthetic result.
Finally, as with all things man made, Veneers do have a life expectancy, which depends on various factors including how well you care for them. Keep the teeth very clean and avoid biting on very hard things.
