Have you ever noticed someone whose smile looked dazzling with uniform, straight, glowing teeth, and wondered how in the world they got such a smile? Well, it could be that they were born with an immaculate set of teeth, but that is not always the case. Sometimes perfect smiles are born, but many are made.
How? With dental veneers.

What Is a Tooth Veneer or Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers—also known as tooth veneers—are thin, shell-like porcelain covers that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They provide a shield of security that covers and protects any weaknesses in the underlying tooth, such as chips, cracks, cavities, and so forth. The concept is simple, and the process is too!
What Are the Advantages of Getting a Tooth Veneer or Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a fast way to get a brand new smile! If you are wondering how your smile can benefit, here are a few advantages to getting porcelain veneers on your teeth:
Perfect Fit for Your Teeth
A dental veneer is custom made to perfectly fit the shape and contour of the tooth or teeth to which the dental veneer or veneers will be applied.
Sometimes, the dental veneer is made to wrap around the tooth to make it look complete if a significant portion of the side of the tooth is missing. It can also help reshape a tooth that is awkwardly sized or too small for your smile.
Corrections for Many Dental Problems
We can use dental veneers to correct or cover up a number of common problems that affect a tooth’s surface, including physical damage. Dental veneers are an ideal solution for dealing with teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken, discolored, or misshapen.
Dental veneers also work well to hide any gaps between teeth or to cover teeth that are otherwise unattractive or stand out. A single tooth veneer could be your solution to simply one odd tooth that doesn’t match your other teeth.
Beautiful Restorations and Astonishing Upgrades for Your Smile
If you get dental veneers for only some of your visible teeth, they will be color-matched to your natural teeth. However, if you are getting dental veneers to cover all of the teeth that show in your smile, you have the option to get dental veneers that are several shades lighter than your natural teeth for a lighter, brighter smile.
Dental veneers are durable, sturdy, and beautiful.
What Is the Veneers Process in Sugar House?
Getting a dental veneer for a tooth is an easy process at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake.
- During your initial visit, Dr. Theurer or an assistant will make a mold of your teeth that will be used to create the dental veneer. This ensures they fit your teeth perfectly and look natural in your smile.
- Next, we send the mold to a special lab that makes all of the dental veneers we use. The lab will make sure that the teeth veneers are color-matched to the rest of your teeth, so the veneered tooth or teeth don’t stand out or look odd in your smile.
- On your next visit, the dentist will buff down the outer covering of the tooth or teeth that will be covered by the veneers. This gets the teeth ready for the dentist to place the dental veneer on top of the tooth and bond it to the surface of that tooth.
- Finally, when your tooth has been made ready, the dentist bonds the tooth veneer to your tooth.
Once it has been attached, the dentist may adjust it slightly to make sure that it is indeed the right size and shape to match your other teeth seamlessly.
