Dental veneers are great cosmetic dental treatments that will correct the imperfections of your smile. They are wafer-thin shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth and quickly improve your appearance, just the way you’ve always wanted. If you’re interested in improving your smile with dental veneers in Christiansburg, Virginia, but would like to learn a little more about them, our Christiansburg Dental team has provided the following information to help you:

What types of veneers are available?
There are two types of veneers available in the cosmetic dentistry world: porcelain and resin veneers. They both have beneficial characteristics, and they can both improve your smile just the way you would like them to. Your dentist will examine your chompers and decide which product is best for you.

What problems can veneers fix?
Veneers can correct and fix many problems, like broken, chipped, and discolored teeth. They can also help with misaligned, irregularly shaped, and worn-down teeth. If necessary, they can also help close wide gaps in your smile.

How are veneers placed?
The process of placing a dental veneer is simple and painless. It involves your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Then, they will trim the top layer of your tooth to create room for the veneer. Once your tooth is the correct size and shape, your dentist will create a veneer specific to your smile. The creation process may take a couple days. When the veneer is ready, your dentist will check the size, shape, and color to make sure it is perfect. If it’s what you’re looking for, they will cement it into place.
