What Can Veneers Do For Your Smile?
- Posted on: Sep 14 2018
Hello, and welcome to our Flax Dental blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a question that many dental patients have: “What are porcelain veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown, which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are typically 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 create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.
Since a tiny layer of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this is usually irreversible.
