What Can Veneers Do For Your Smile?

In this blog post from OKC Smiles in Oklahoma City, we take the time to answer a question that many dental patients have: “What are porcelain veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from durable, medical-grade ceramic. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front. They are usually used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.
