In this blog post from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have: “What exactly are porcelain veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown, which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers onlythe front. They are generally used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.
One thing to remember: 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.
To find out more about porcelain veneers, schedule a consultation with The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City. We provide a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, as well as dental implants. Make an appointment today.
