Veneers

 

Have you been bothered by a tooth that is slightly discolored? Or perhaps your teeth look a little too big, or too small, for your face.  Veneers offer the perfect solution for almost any cosmetic dentistry need.  Keep reading if you've been interested in learning about dental veneers, who they benefit, or wondering how much do veneers cost?

 

What are Dental Veneers?

 

Dental veneers are thin covers, custom made to fit your teeth.  They're usually made from porcelain or resin. Panhandle Dental can help you decide which material is best for you.  Porcelain veneers look the most natural and are more stain resistant. However, resin is thinner and requires less of your natural tooth's surface to be removed prior to veneer placement. Because the dentist has the ability to make them any size, color, or shape, you can choose the exact look you want from your veneers and get the smile you have always desired.

 

Who Benefits from Dental Veneers?

 

Dental veneers are used to correct multiple dental situations.  Common uses for dental veneers include:

 

  • Stained teeth: Whether teeth are stained from medication usage, damage, root canal treatments, habits like smoking or chewing tobacco, or other causes, dental veneers can be used to cover stained teeth and give your smile a more uniform color.

 

  • Chipped/broken teeth: Dental veneers can be used to cover chipped or broken teeth and are a more affordable option than dental implants.

 

  • Worn down teeth: Sometimes teeth become worn down, causing uneven dental lines. Veneers can be applied to even the dental line and add height if necessary.

 

  • Irregularly shaped teeth: Dental veneers can be applied to teeth that are unevenly shaped to make them appear smooth and uniform.

 

  • Gaps: Your dentist can create veneers to widen teeth that have an unsightly gap, making teeth appear as if they meet in the middle.
