Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, and/or length.
What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
- Teeth that are discolored due to root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride, or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
A gorgeous smile is a hard-earned asset for many. Previously, a full smile makeover would involve several trips to the dentist’s office for the placement of dental veneers. Lumineers have allowed for a major advancement in smile make overs.
This brand of veneer is special because it can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without painful removal of sensitive tooth strucure. In a matter of just a couple of visits, if you are a candidate for Lumineers, you will have a gleaming bright white smile that is perfectly proportioned to your mouth.
