Veneers are one way to quickly gain a beautiful smile. A “veneer” is simply a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of each individual tooth, allowing you to alter 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 needed.
According to archaeologists who have found ancient Greek orthodontic appliances, crooked teeth have been a problem since 50,000 BC, but it would seem that dental practices have come a long way since then.
As your Langley Dentist, we will conduct 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 without extensive orthodontic treatments or whitening procedures.
Misaligned teeth, in addition to being unattractive, can also increase the chances of cavities and gum disease by creating pockets in the mouth where food can get trapped. Also, a misaligned bite can be responsible for everything from painful TMJ to eventual tooth and bone loss.
A custom veneer is the ideal procedure for weak, thin, worn down or damaged teeth because -in effect- it makes them strong and new, without the intrusion of metal braces to straighten your teeth.
Veneers are not just a cosmetic fix, they also can be the key to maintaining optimal oral health care, and are considered one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available.
At Cornerstone Dental, we have the technology to create veneers for our patients that look completely natural, and are individually sculpted. Come in to see us, and allow us to collectively decide if veneers are the best approach for your dental concerns. We look forward to helping your smile!
