What Can Dental Veneers Do For Your Smile?

what is a dental veneer? La Mesa

In this blog post from Jeff Gray DDS | Espire Dental in La Mesa CA, we are taking the time to answer a common question: “What exactly are veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Dental veneers are thin shells made from medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. 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 part. They are usually used on teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available in modern cosmetic dentistry. They are so effective they’ve even been called “instant orthodontics.”

Technically, of course, they are not orthodontics. But they are very strong, and can work wonders on any smile.

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. When the process is done, you’ll have the best-looking smile of anyone you know.
