Are Veneers Right for Me?

Are you happy with your smile or are there things you’d like to improve cosmetically? Veneers are one of the best ways to truly transform the appearance of your smile. Read on for help deciding whether they are the right cosmetic treatment for you.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit on the front of your teeth. They were first created in the 1920s for actors. Originally, veneers were temporary and needed dental adhesive to stay in place. As the years went on, the process became more refined. Innovations meant that veneers could be bonded permanently to a tooth’s surface. If you get veneers, each shell is custom-made so you get the size, shape, and color that works best for your smile.

Should I Get Veneers?

If you have teeth with deep stains or uneven shapes, veneers will hide those imperfections. They also strengthen teeth weakened by chips or cracks. If you’re wanting a full smile transformation, we’ll most likely use crowns for your molars and veneers for your front teeth. You do need to have good oral health to be a candidate for veneers. We also can’t put the shells on teeth with severe damage or decay.

Veneers are one of the pricier cosmetic treatments. But with proper care like brushing, flossing, and regular trips to the dentist, your veneers can last for decades! During your consultation, we can discuss the variety of payment options our office offers to make your treatment plan affordable.
