Do you know what dental veneers are? Are you in need of cosmetic dentistry in order to improve your smile? If you don’t know what veneers are, have all your teeth intact, and just need some minor changes made, then veneers may be the best cosmetic dentistry option available to you at this time.

Veneers are very thin custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth in an effort to improve their appearance. Veneers can be used as an alternative to whitening, crowns, implants, or contouring. Veneers are also great for fixing teeth that are chipped or broken.

For people who have health issues that may prevent them from getting implants (such as a thin jaw bone) veneers are a great option for cosmetic dentistry.

However, to receive veneers, you will have to have a layer of enamel removed from your teeth. Once the enamel is removed, your dentist will place a custom-built veneer on your tooth and bind it there with a special type of cement.

Choosing to get veneers on your teeth is a very personal decision that requires a lot of communication between you and your dentist. Here at Cosmo Dental, we’re dedicated to making sure you get the most out of any cosmetic dentistry treatment you choose to undergo.

The most important part of the veneer process is clearly communicating to your dentist what you hope to achieve with your smile by undergoing this procedure.
