Enhancing Your Smile
Veneers: Are they right for you?
Veneers can correct many dental problems:
- Front teeth that are worn or chipped
- Gaps and other spaces between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Discoloration from medication or age
What is the difference between a crown and a veneer?
Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. When dental bleaching can not remove stain (as with gray discoloration caused by medication), veneers are often an alternate way to a brighter smile. Veneers also preserve more of the natural tooth structure than porcelain crowns. Veneers are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking. And, the procedure requires little or no anesthesia.
Pre-op discussions will leave you smiling
As with all of the cosmetic dental procedures we perform for our patients, we want you to take an active role in your smile design. We encourage you to spend time in the decision-making and planning of your new smile. We do not charge our patients for treatment discussion appointments. The number of pre-operative visits is up to you. We believe that excellent dentistry is in the details.
