Veneers are one of the most commonly sought after cosmetic dental procedures that can lead to a beautiful smile. There are many choices, from traditional porcelain or zirconia veneers, to low preparation or no preparation procedures.
Your dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your qualified option to determine which veneer is right for you.
Types of Veneers
Low prep and no prep veneers work best when targeting minor aesthetic corrections such as a cracked, chipped, or permanently discolored teeth. There are several no-prep options on the market, so be sure to discuss the pros and cons of each with your dentist.
If you are looking to correct your smile and have several concerns or more complex needs, porcelain veneers may be your treatment of choice. Patients who want to correct unwanted gaps, uneven sizes, or severe stains may experience improved results with traditional veneers. The thin sheets of porcelain will mimic the look and feel of natural teeth and are typically completed in two dental visits.
Tooth bonding can also be used to correct minor tooth damage.
What Veneer Option Works Best for You?
In the end, the choice is up to you. Not every candidate will qualify for all options, so it is important to gather as much information about each veneer type and your long-term needs before treatment begins. An experienced dentist will discuss each one and how the treatment may apply to your situation.
