Are you nervous about smiling because you have teeth that are discolored, chipped or even oddly shaped? If you answered yes, then perhaps some porcelain veneers can resolve the problem.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped covers. When they are placed on the teeth that you feel uncomfortable with, they can keep the things you want to be covered hidden from onlookers. Also, the porcelain can be colored to the more natural look of your teeth. With these characteristics, your smile can look pristine and natural and help you feel more comfortable showing it to others.
Another quality of veneers you may like is that they do not alter your teeth as much as other kinds of dental work. For an example, crowns often need teeth to be significantly reduced in size before they can be placed, which may be helpful if those teeth were heavily damaged. Veneers can help with more minor problems, and only very small and thin amounts of enamel may need to be removed to make room for them.
To give the look of the smile you want, Dr. James R. Healy takes impressions of your teeth. With these impressions, the veneers can be made so they have the right look and fit to match your smile.
