Dental Veneers

Posted Jun 19th, 2012 in Health News

There are several options for improving your smile, but opting for dental veneers has many advantages.

A veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. Veneers may be used to lighten front teeth that are naturally yellow or have a gray cast that cant be whitened by bleaching. Sometimes, they are used to correct teeth that are chipped or worn. They may also be used to correct uneven spaces or a large gap between the upper front teeth.

There are two type of veneers that your dental provider will discuss with you, ceramic veneers and composite resin veneers.

Ceramic Veneers:

  • Strong
  • Smooth and translucent surface provides a natural appearance.
  • Resistant to staining.
  • Composite resin veneers:
  • Take fewer visits to the dentist.
  • Easy to replace if damaged.

Both types of veneers benefits include:

  • No special maintenance is needed other than good oral hygiene each day.
  • Veneers typically require less removal of tooth enamel than crowns.
