At Sullivan Family Dental, we offer a variety of cosmetic services, such as Invisalign clear aligner therapy, teeth whitening, crowns, and veneers. Are you disappointed with your smile? In this blog post, we help you determine if veneers are the right cosmetic solution to transform your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over the front of teeth. They are durable and stain-resistant. Before your porcelain veneers can be bonded to your teeth, you will need a thin layer from enamel removed from their surface. Then the veneer can fit snugly on the tooth. Because your tooth enamel is altered, veneers are considered a permanent enhancement. When your veneers wear out in many years, you will need to get new ones to protect your underlying natural teeth from decay and sensitivity.

What Can Veneers Fix?

Veneers are a versatile solution that can address many cosmetic dental issues. For example, you could get just one veneer to address something like a crack or chip. Several veneers could make your smile more uniform. Or you can go for a full set of veneers to completely transform your smile. Porcelain veneers can fix many dental woes, including discoloration, a misshapen tooth, small gaps, a chip, and more.
