Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve the smile. Veneers can be applied on an individual basis, or across the entire smile line. The veneer itself is a small porcelain tooth shell that is fabricated to look like a natural tooth. It is then place over the top of the troublesome tooth (which must first be shaped down to allow for the fit) and bonded in place. Because the natural tooth must first be shaped, dental veneers are permanent. Less invasive alternatives do exist in the form of “minimal prep” veneers, which are thinner than and therefore not as durable as their traditional counterparts. Popular brands of minimal prep veneers include Lumineers and Vivaneers.
The cosmetic dentist that I worked with incredible as was his staff. He is board certified which I highly recommend, because we have all seen the botched veneers that make some look like Bullwinkle. I truly believe there is an art to the design and setting of the veneers. In addition, his staff was all so welcoming, supportive, and really made me very comfortable emotionally and physically during all the visits. I was very impressed by their attentiveness to detail, expertise, and true artistry.
