Dental veneers are a great option in the right circumstance for people that have real dark colorations in their teeth that can't be corrected with some form of whitening or some form of bleaching. Or, that have a shape to their teeth that they want to change and sometimes even have alignment or minor alignment problems with their teeth. There's three different types of veneers out there, which is something that a lot of people don't realize and we offer all three. One is a no-prep veneer where you don't really have to grind the tooth down much to correct the problems. The other is a minimal-prep veneer where we do a little bit of shaping of the teeth and put the veneers on over top of it. The third is what's called a full-prep veneer or traditional veneer. The different veneer options have to be chosen for an individual circumstances. Not every single option is appropriate to every single person's problems or what they want to correct. The minimal-prep veneers are great because there's not a lot of grinding on the teeth, but it's a specific situation where that will actually work out well. The full-prep veneers are for people who really want a meticulous result. Who really want to correct color, really want to correct the tooth shape and sometimes the alignment of their teeth, and they kind of want almost a Hollywood perfect smile result. The minimal-prep veneers are actually somewhere in between.
Dental Veneers And Their Benefits Explained
Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that can completely cover the visible surface of the front of your teeth. Dental veneers can be used to conceal several smile flaws, including:
- Small gaps between teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Teeth that appear slightly crooked
Many of our patients even choose to have dental veneers placed on all of their teeth that show while smiling for a dramatically improved appearance!
