Dental veneers are a conservative procedure that restores and enhances your natural smile. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are individually sculpted to mimic the look of your original teeth. During the process, a thin layer of enamel is removed so the veneers can adhere directly to the tooth without adding bulk. The amount of enamel removed will vary depending on the thickness of the porcelain used. Since Dr. Greg Mann and Dr. Ross Owens will create a unique set of veneers for each patient, there will be virtually no visual difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. An additional benefit of this procedure is that the porcelain used is resistant to staining, which means your new smile will maintain its bright, white look for years and years.
Our dentist will use veneers to fix a wide range of dental concerns. If you have slightly discolored or deeply stained teeth, then veneers will be able to give you a white smile without any time-consuming treatments. Teeth with pitted or cracked enamel can be easily repaired with veneers. In some cases, Dr. Greg Mann and Dr. Ross Owens will also use a veneer to correct the appearance of a crooked or twisted tooth. Because a veneer is only a thin layer over the front of your tooth, it is still extremely important to continue good oral hygiene to prevent any tooth decay. If properly maintained, veneers can last for decades without needing to be replaced.
