If your front teeth have been chipped, cracked or damaged, permanently stained, spaced improperly, crooked or misshaped, veneers may be the solution for your smile.
Veneers offer patients a cosmetic alternative to more invasive smile-enhancing procedures. A veneer is a thin covering or simulated "tooth front" that is custom-made to match your teeth and enhance your smile. It is constructed from a hard stain-resistant material, often porcelain so that it will last for a long period as well as improve your smile.
To achieve the look of natural teeth, the porcelain is custom-fitted to your teeth and has a translucent finish to resemble natural tooth enamel. Natural tooth enamel does not reflect light immediately. It goes through the enamel and reflects off the opaque tooth dentin that is underneath. The translucency of the veneers helps achieve the same effect.
Veneers are relatively long-lasting and require minimal maintenance, but they are unsuitable for everyone. Our Aurora dentist, Dr. Shasha can help you determine if veneers are a good option for you based on your individual dental needs and goals.
If you want a beautiful and natural-looking solution for your teeth, porcelain veneers are a long-lasting procedure that is worth considering. Contact our Smiles Dental team in Aurora today to learn more!
