What are dental veneers?

Veneers are very thin layers of tooth-colored material that are bonded to the front of your teeth to reshape and improve the overall appearance of your smile while also hiding a variety of common dental flaws such as discolorations, cracks, gaps between teeth and even misshapen or crooked teeth. Since they are often made from porcelain, their durability is comparable to real tooth enamel and they are stain resistant.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Before you decide whether or not to turn to our Walnut Creek, CA, dentist to find out if veneers are right for you it’s important to understand what this cosmetic treatment can offer. Here are some of the benefits that veneer wearers can enjoy:

A new and improved smile

No matter whether you want to hide minor imperfections or more widespread issues, veneers can be placed on a couple or all of your visible teeth to reshape, resize and even improve the alignment of your smile. That’s right; veneers can even make your smile straighter without the need for braces. You’ll also discover how much your confidence improves when you have a smile you love.

Teeth are more durable

While veneers shouldn’t be considered a restorative treatment, these cosmetic shells can make teeth more durable and resilient. After all, porcelain is amazingly strong and can provide your smile with additional protection against regular wear and tear.

Less tooth preparation is required

When it comes to getting other restorations like dental crowns, we will need to reshape and remove a lot of your tooth in order to make room for the crown. Luckily, very little tooth enamel is removed when you get veneers, making tooth preparation minimal and painless. In fact, this can even be performed without local anesthesia. The less natural enamel is removed the stronger the tooth will be in the long run.

Don’t you want to feel proud of your smile? If imperfections are keeping you from feeling good about the way you look then it’s time to schedule a consultation with our Walnut Creek, CA, aesthetic dentist to find out whether veneers are right for you.
