Do you have a tooth or teeth that have chips, cracks, are discolored or have gaps in between them? Do you wish you could have a more uniform, sparkling smile? There are several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can give you a more beautiful smile. One of them is veneers offered here at our Ocala practice near Ocala and The Villages.
WHAT ARE VENEERS FOR TEETH?
Porcelain veneers, also called a dental veneer, are made from porcelain and are a thin, translucent shell that is bonded to the front and sometimes the side of your tooth. Though they are made from porcelain, they are durable, sturdy and last a long time.
There are two types of veneers for teeth, and we offer both systems. One is traditional porcelain veneers, which require some preparation, in which the dentist shaves off the outer layer of the tooth to prepare it for bonding the dental veneer. Prepless porcelain veneers are similar to the traditional veneers for teeth, but require no preparation. Both veneers-for-teeth systems are custom made for you so the porcelain veneers made at the lab are perfect for your smile.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF VENEERS FOR TEETH?
- Each dental veneer is color matched to your natural teeth, so they don’t stick out and look odd or like fake teeth.
- Porcelain veneers can make your entire smile a few shades lighter if you choose to get a dental veneer on each tooth that shows in your smile.
- Porcelain veneers require no special care. Just brush and floss as usual and see your dentist regularly.
- A dental veneer can dramatically change the look of your tooth – cracks, discoloration, misshapen, too small, or gaps between teeth can all be remedied and create an attractive, natural-looking tooth.
