It is easy to improve your smile with veneers. Teeth with cosmetic concerns, such as chips or discolorations, can be completely transformed. Veneers can conceal many types of imperfections and help you achieve a flawless smile. At Ogden Dental in Columbia, our dentist, Dr. Michael Ogden, can determine if you could be a candidate for veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are extremely thin laminates that cover the front surface of teeth. The purpose of veneers is to improve the appearance of teeth suffering from imperfections. Each veneer is custom made to fit perfectly over its corresponding tooth. When a custom veneer is ready, it is cemented in place on the tooth so it will not come off when biting into foods. Once in place, veneers readily blend in and look like your natural teeth.
Benefits of Veneers
Selecting veneers to improve your smile has several benefits. One benefit of veneers is that each one is custom created. The color, size, and shape can all be customized to give your veneers a natural look so they blend in with your existing teeth. Once in place, no one will be able to tell you have veneers. Further, veneers are regularly made from porcelain, which looks like tooth enamel and gives veneers a more natural look.
Another benefit of veneers is that they are permanent. Cementing each veneer in place ensures it will not come off when speaking, eating, or drinking. One of the most exciting benefits of veneers is how much they can improve your smile by concealing various cosmetic issues. At our office in Columbia, our dentist can discuss with you how veneers can be used to address specific cosmetic concerns. Some of the issues veneers can help with include:
- Crooked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Misshaped or oddly-shaped teeth
- Rough and uneven tooth surfaces
