Disguise imperfections with porcelain or composite veneers
If you have imperfections near the front of the smile, including stained, broken, or gapped teeth, you may be curious about the options available to you for enhancing the natural smile. Dr. Bridget Lervick of Grandview Center for Dentistry in Edina, Minnesota, is a reliable and experienced dentist who can educate you on ways to cover and disguise these issues: dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin facings customized by our dental laboratory to match the existing teeth. They are used to cover problems within the smile with lasting results. Many patients interested in a smile makeover may consider using dental veneers to disguise certain imperfections that may take away from an otherwise beautiful smile.
What types of veneers are available at Grandview Center for Dentistry?
Our office is pleased to offer both porcelain veneers and composite veneers for patient consideration:
- Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are one of the most popular and effective solutions for transforming your smile. They are made of a thin, custom-designed shell that is typically applied to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their shape, size, and color. Porcelain veneers are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth and able to withstand normal wear and tear.
- Composite veneers: Composite veneers are made of a material similar to that used in tooth-colored fillings, which makes them relatively easy to apply. These veneers can provide an instant makeover and brighten your smile in just one visit with minimal preparation required. Although composite veneers do not last as long as porcelain ones, they are a great, cost-effective option.
