There are a variety of choices available in modern dentistry to give you a beautiful smile when you have problems with your teeth. Next to brushing and flossing your teeth, dental veneers are a generally painless, fairly quick solution to restoring your smile.

These wafer-thin shells are bonded over your front teeth if you currently suffer from chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth and are made from porcelain or composite resin.

Resin veneers are inexpensive and if the extent of your tooth problem is minor and cosmetic. They can be made in one visit as they are made in your mouth and are bonded to your tooth. Another reason people choose composite veneers is that they do not require a buffing down of the tooth so more tooth surface remains. The resin is then bonded directly to your tooth.

Our office uses porcelain veneers and these require more than one visit. Porcelain veneers more closely resemble the shiny surface of normal tooth enamel so they are the most natural looking next to the rest of your teeth. They are more useful in restoring cracked, chipped, crooked and spaced teeth, as well as heavy discolored teeth. While veneers can last anywhere from seven to twenty years, porcelain veneers last the longest.
