Veneers are thin porcelain facings bonded to the front of the teeth. They are a conservative approach to improving the shape, color or alignment of your teeth and creating a natural beautiful smile.
Dental veneers are essentially a conservative crown. Rather than reducing the entire tooth 360 degrees, a cosmetic veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that covers the front/visible part of a tooth, preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. It wraps slightly over the edge of the tooth to help with retention of the veneer and add strength. Porcelain Veneers can straighten, lengthen, close gaps, repair chips, and whiten teeth to provide the desired effect. Each veneered tooth must be individually shaped. This means that a thin outer layer of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for dental veneer placement. Generally, the amount of tooth structure that is reduced is very minimal – about .8 mm to 1 mm. The veneer is bonded to the tooth, making it very strong. Weisbard Dental, Greenwood Village, uses thin porcelain veneers to improve the shape, color, and creating a naturally beautiful teeth and smile.
