At Humphries Dental, we believe everyone should have a smile they can be proud of. Unfortunately, even if you brush and floss regularly, there are some dental conditions that just can’t be helped without assistance from professionals. Chipping and staining of the teeth can become a source of insecurity that keep you from smiling. Luckily, dental veneers offer the perfect solution for restoring the beauty of your natural smile.
Think of a veneer as a tooth enhancer. These thin layers of porcelain or composite are placed directly onto the facial surface of the tooth to cover imperfections and even change the shape of your teeth.
Before you receive your veneers, the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to a lab where the veneers are fabricated. In the final visit, your veneers will be fitted and bonded to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are made out of ceramic material that resembles the color of your tooth much closer than composite veneers. Although more expensive than the alternative, porcelain veneers are also more durable.
Composite veneers are made of a mixed resin that can be colored to resemble a tooth. They are typically not as expensive and require less material to be removed from the tooth than porcelain veneers.
