Dental veneers are one of the many cosmetic options offered here at St. Paul Family Dentistry. If you’re looking to improve your smile from a cosmetic standpoint, dental veneers are just one of the options Dr. Joseph Opack recommends you research.

With that in mind, let’s look at veneers, how they work, and why they may be a good option for you and your smile’s needs.

What are veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells, usually made from porcelain, that fit right over the top surface of your teeth. They’re cemented in place with a UV light and, and are made to custom fit your smile.

How do they work?

After being attached to the surface of your teeth, veneers will change the color of your teeth, their shape, and even cover up minor chips or cracks in your teeth. To take of your veneers, you simply need to follow a good oral health regimen.

Why veneers?

Veneers are a great option for people who have very minor cosmetic problems with their smile, or deep enamel stains that whitening won’t fix. Small cracks, chips, or misshapen teeth can be addressed with veneers and eliminate the need for implants or bridges.

The cosmetic dentistry option you choose will be influenced by the recommendation of Dr. Joseph Opack, but it’s important to be well-informed about all of your options. If you have any other questions about veneers, or other cosmetic options, call us today at 651.488.5522.
