Oftentimes, patients are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, whether it be gaps in their teeth, discoloration, chips, or a crooked appearance. In Grand Rapids, we offer a solution to these issues to give you a permanent, beautiful smile: veneers. Read on to learn about this dental option and the many benefits that it offers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, individually made tooth casings made up of porcelain to cover the front side of your teeth. A model of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental technician for your unique veneers to be made. In order to place veneers, a small amount of tooth enamel must usually be removed to make room for the veneer.
Benefits of Veneers
There are a variety of benefits that veneers offer, one being that they look extremely natural. Because veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and your natural tooth. Veneers are also stain resistant, so you don’t have to worry about staining your new smile. Furthermore, only a minimal amount of tooth alteration is needed to fit veneers, so there is no major surgery required. The best part? Veneers are permanent, so you can have the smile of your dreams, long-term!
There is also no special maintenance required with veneers; you will simply treat them are you do your natural teeth.
