Veneers and Laminates
This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile. Veneers and Laminates
are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the
teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics
of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost
tooth structure where indicated.
Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if
veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically
transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.
Veneers can enhance the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you
want, and give you the smile you have always desired. Additionally, Veneers are
bonded to your tooth structure, which gives them strength.
Since they are very thin, Veneers are considered one of the most conservative
cosmetic treatments available. Most of the time, very little or no tooth
structure is removed before placing veneers. Ask your dentist how veneers can
improve your smile.
