Dental veneers can completely change the appearance of your smile and correct minor imperfections that would otherwise take a lot of work to rectify. Veneers also last for up to 10 years before needing to be replaced, so you have a relatively long-term option for having a gorgeous, full smile.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are small pieces of porcelain that are lab-created to mimic the rest of your smile. They are tooth colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of a tooth. They are then cemented onto the fronts of your teeth to correct minor problems like discoloration, chipping and cracks. Veneers can last for many years with the proper care and treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Veneers are ideal for anyone who is unhappy with the look and feel of their smile. Some of the issues that veneers can correct include:
- Hairline cracks (craze lines)
What to Expect
The procedure to have veneers placed is incredibly noninvasive and easy. In fact, most patients don’t even need to have anesthetic because the surface of the tooth is lightly buffed to make room for the veneer. Once the veneers are created specifically for you, they will be placed using permanent dental cement so that they last for years. Here at Dental Care of Norwalk, we are happy to help fit you for the right veneers so that you can feel confident with your smile.
