In the last 15 years there have been many advances in cosmetic dentistry. Now dentists have a number of good techniques and procedures that can improve the look of your smile. Just about anyone can have a beautiful and natural looking smile utilizing materials that are longer lasting and stronger than ever.
One of the most interesting has been the advent of veneers. Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain or other composite material that are bonded to the front of the teeth. They are less expensive than crowns and are one of the more conservative approaches in that they offer the opportunity to change the shape and color of teeth with minimal removal of tooth structure. Patients who have gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are worn from grinding or chipped may consider veneers. Click here to learn more about veneers.
