Dental veneers are made from thin porcelain material that is placed on the outside of your teeth allowing for significant changes in the appearance of your teeth or possible protection to your teeth’s surface from damage.
Because they are wafer thin and require little to no anesthesia, veneers can be a simple and excellent choice for enhancing the appearance of your front teeth. In some cases, veneers can be a great alternative to dental crowns.
Placing veneers requires a high attention to detail and excellent technical skills. The veneer material is “sculpted” onto your teeth to enhance the individual characteristics of your smile .
Dr. Faist has designed thousands of veneers cases over the years and the results are truly phenomenal.
Veneers can be a solution for the following conditions:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Irregular or misshapened teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Some frequent questions we get from our patients are:
Dental veneers are very strong and durable. They can last up to twenty years, offering years of service to the patient.
This is certainly a factor that will be discussed during your evaluation and smile design so that everything matches and blends well with your new smile. Dr. Faist will work with you to select the color of the porcelain veneer to best match your other teeth. Often times patients will whiten the lower teeth with whitening products or procedures to ensure a good match.
