If you've been thinking about getting veneers for your teeth, you have come to the right place! At Farmington Village Dental Dr. Eric Krause loves to enhance smiles with veneers.
What are veneers made out of?
Although veneers can be made of composite material, the best looking and longest lasting veneers are made out of porcelain.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are a very conservative restoration, requiring the removal of a bare minimum of your natural enamel which allows room for the porcelain to be bonded over top.
Who gets porcelain veneers?
Anyone who is unhappy with their smile is often a candidate for porcelain veneers. Simply put, people often want veneers to either change their tooth shape, their tooth color, or for both reasons.
Specifically, people seek veneers because they have:
- chipped teeth
- stained teeth
- dark teeth
- crooked teeth
- spaced teeth
- oddly shaped teeth
Sometimes, veneers come out best when a little bit of orthodontic work is done beforehand. If that's the case, don't worry, Dr. Monique Nadeau has been doing orthodontics for over ten years and often cases are completed in six months or less.
Now for an example...
