Dental Veneers are a great way to correct misshapen, stained, or cracked teeth, and give patients a long lasting beautiful smile. Veneers are durable, stain resistant, and blend in with your natural teeth, making veneers a popular choice for patients.
Dental veneers are shells made out of either porcelain or composite resin material. They are bonded to the teeth and blend in nicely. Veneers match the shade and color of your natural teeth, giving patients that perfect natural looking white smile.
Typically, veneers are used for patients that have misshapen, stained, uneven, or chipped teeth. Veneers are not permanent, but they are durable, and last between 10-15 years. The life of veneers depends on how much wear and tear they face over time.
Patients that have discoloration from multiple dental procedures are typically good candidates for veneers. In addition, patients that have stains from food, or prescription drugs can also benefit from veneers. Veneers can be used to create an even smile, close gaps between teeth, and look natural in the mouth. Gum tissue tolerates porcelain veneers very well, and veneers are stain resistant which helps to keep them bright white.
Porcelain veneers are durable, and are made out of ceramic. These veneers can be matched exactly to the shade of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are the most common type of veneer used because of the ability to really customize the veneer to best fit your teeth. Porcelain veneers preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, and give patients a long lasting smile.
Lumineers are another type of porcelain veneer that can help to improve a patient’s smile. This type of veneer requires minimal tooth preparation, and the material is thinner and easily applied compared to traditional porcelain veneers. Placement of lumineers can be done without injections or anesthesia, and give patients the same benefits and long lasting results.
Composite resin veneers give the same results and benefits compared to traditional porcelain veneers. This type of veneer helps with chips, teeth length, and gaps between teeth. Composite resin veneers are less expensive, making this a budget friendly choice for patients. The life of a composite resin veneer is not as long as traditional porcelain veneers. Composite resin veneers are applied in a similar fashion with minimal tooth preparation.

Zirconia veneers are typically used for patients that have severely decayed or damaged teeth. This type of veneer is helpful for patients that are looking for an option that is stronger than porcelain veneers. Zirconia is typically used for back teeth, and this type of material can add strength to teeth to prevent wear and tear.
