Are you embarrassed of the appearance of your smile? If so, our Crossroads Dental team has a suggestion for you: Consider improving the appearance of your chompers with dental veneers! Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth and quickly beautify your smile. To help you know a little more about these beneficial products, we have provided the following information:

What types of veneers are available?
Generally, there are porcelain and resin veneers. Porcelain veneers can successfully resist stains while resin veneers mimic the appearance of your natural teeth. Your dentist will examine your smile and determine which type of veneer is best for you.

What problems can veneers fix?
There are many problems that veneers can fix. Some of those problems include discolored, worn-down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, and irregularly shaped teeth. Veneers can also close large gaps in your smile if necessary.

How are veneers placed?
The process of placing a dental veneer is simple. It starts with your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When you’re ready, they will trim a small amount of your tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. Then, they will create your veneer and will make sure it’s the right color and size. This process may require a couple appointments. Once your veneer is perfect, your dentist will cement it into place.
