What exactly are veneers?
Think of them as very thin all porcelain crowns (caps). They are done for cosmetic purposes to give patients the beautiful smile they have always wanted.
Why would I consider veneers?
Again, they are done for cosmetic purposes, so if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, ask if veneers are right for you. Sometimes orthodontic treatment needs to be done in conjunction with veneers to obtain optimal results.
Some indications for veneers include:
Correction of crooked and malformed teeth
Very dark or discolored teeth
Very large or very small teeth
Correction of tooth spacing
Chipped or worn down teeth
Veneers are permanent and long lasting solution to improving the appearance of your teeth.
