Veneers may be used cosmetically to resurface teeth to make them appear straighter or merely to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing alignment. This may be a quick way to improve the appearance of misaligned teeth without resorting to orthodontics.
Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, in Salem, Oregon, can help you find out whether the veneer treatment option is right for you!
What Is a Veneer?
A veneer is a thin, tooth-shaped piece of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your tooth to improve both aesthetics and function. At Stones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use only the highest quality labs to fabricate the veneers, ensuring that our patients receive beautiful results.
Reasons for Veneers
There are several reasons why a patient may want veneers when creating a new smile. Dental veneers are a versatile treatment that can help many patients. Veneers can resolve:
- Chipped teeth.
- Crooked or misshapen teeth.
- Gaps or spaces between teeth.
- Teeth with deep, unsightly stains.
In short, veneers are part of an aesthetic treatment. The goal is to achieve a more beautiful and youthful look, something that veneers can achieve admirably!
Advantages of Veneers
The advantages of using a veneer to restore a tooth are numerous.
Very pleasing aesthetics can be obtained, with minimal to no tooth preparation. Traditionally, a reduction of approximately 0.5 mm is required for a veneer. This is a small amount that ensures your veneer does not make your teeth unduly thick.
Many veneer procedures can be done with the use of little or no local anesthetic. This means that getting a new smile is a pain-free process!
Veneers are a quick way to improve your smile! In two visits, you can have the smile of your dreams.
