Dental veneers are one of the cosmetic services we provide at our office to help you achieve the beautiful, inviting smile you desire. Veneers are custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth in order to improve your smile’s appearance. Dr. Griffith may recommend veneers if you are searching for a way to correct cosmetic dental flaws such as:
- Gapped teeth
- Darkened or stained teeth
- Worn, fractured, or chipped teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
Dental veneers are created from tooth-colored materials; the most common material for veneers is porcelain. Porcelain is a great choice for veneers and other dental restorations because it is stain resistant and durable, and it closely mimics the light-reflecting properties of tooth enamel. Our dentist is able to match the shade of porcelain to your natural tooth color for aesthetic, natural-looking results. If you are interested in brightening your smile with veneers, we can use a shade of porcelain that is lighter than your natural tooth color to give you a more radiant smile.
The process for placing dental veneers typically requires two visits to our comfortable office. During the first appointment, we will prepare your teeth and take measurements, impressions, and molds of your teeth, which are used to create the veneers. In the second appointment, we will cement the permanent, custom-made veneers to your teeth for an enhanced smile.
