When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, most people want stunning results with minimally invasive treatment. If your teeth are chipped, discolored, or crooked, you may want to consider dental veneers. Veneers offer many benefits to patients and can possibly be the perfect solution for your dental needs. Keep reading to learn what veneers are, when you might need them, and how DFFD can help!

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are porcelain jackets designed to cover the surface of teeth and improve their appearance. They are bonded to teeth to match the surrounding teeth in size, color and shape.  A tooth requires a small amount of preparation in order to make room for the veneer.  Veneers are durable, natural looking and do not stain like our natural teeth.  

When Would I Need Them?

There are several instances when a person may be interested in porcelain veneers. One of the most common is if you have cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. Veneers are a good option for this kind of dental problem because they can be customized to match the rest of your teeth. Another common reason people get veneers is because their teeth may be extremely stained or discolored. Sometimes teeth can become discolored from trauma, medications or genetic disorders. For patients who want to dramatically whiten their teeth, porcelain veneers might be the perfect option. They are also beneficial for patients who are unhappy with the shape of their teeth as veneers can enhance the contour of their teeth. Patients can also develop small fracture lines, called craze lines, on the front of the teeth and veneers are a great esthetic option for these issues. Finally, some patients choose to get veneers because they are just generally unhappy with their smile.
