Hello, and welcome to our Montz and Maher Dental Group cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown that covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are generally used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.
If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make an impression of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.
Since a minuscule~> layer of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this procedure is usually irreversible.
Montz and Maher Dental Group offer all the services you need to achieve a dazzling smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile redesigns, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.
