Dental Veneers

Close up 3D rendering of a thin porcelain veneer being applied to a toothDental veneers are thin covers or caps, which are placed on your teeth. They are used for a variety of reasons, but they most commonly can be used to hide decay, cracks, or chips on highly visible front teeth, giving you more confidence in your smile. They are also used to fix gaps or uneven spaces between teeth. Veneers are custom-made and permanent, so once they are placed and bonded to your teeth, they stay there. If you are interested in finding out more about veneers and how they can help your smile, give us a call today at Bravo Smile and let us help you explore your options.

Is a Veneer Just Like a Crown?

Veneers and crowns are very similar, except crowns are used on the tops of your teeth, where chewing and biting happens, where veneers are used on the front of your teeth and are more for cosmetic purposes. Veneers are made from porcelain or a composite resin. If the veneers are made from composite resin, they can be built directly on to the tooth, or created from impressions in a lab and then returned to our office.

Porcelain veneers must be created in a lab from impressions and then returned to us. However, if that is the route you take to get your veneers, just like with a crown you may be given temporary veneers until your permanent ones arrive. You may have to have a small amount of enamel taken from your tooth before the veneer is placed, but our team will make sure to take as little enamel as possible to maintain the integrity of your natural teeth.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

If you are interested in using veneers to correct your smile, then there are a few things you should know beforehand. A mouthguard can help protect them, however. Also, your teeth and gums must be healthy before veneers can be placed. If you have your veneers for many years, they may eventually need to be replaced, and a new set will need to be made however, great oral care could allow your veneers to last for a lifetime!
