Veneers

Dental veneers can be an excellent option for fixing chipped, crooked, or broken front teeth.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin custom-made shells of porcelain materials that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth.  They usually require very minimal preparation to your teeth, but are considered an irreversible procedure due to the small amount of enamel that is removed from the tooth.  After preparations to the teeth are finalized, a model of your mouth is made and sent to our dental lab.  We collaborate with the best dental lab in Utah Valley—technicians who are experienced dental artists that make the highest quality cosmetic dental restorations.

Why are Veneers Used?

Veneers are a cosmetic treatment used for a variety of reasons.  They are generally limited to front teeth, because the biting forces experienced by back teeth are generally too great for them to withstand.  Veneers are similar to crowns, but are a much more conservative option, requiring far less tooth preparation.  Veneers are effective in treating discolored teeth that are resistant to teeth whitening.  Front teeth that have had root canals, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, or large fillings that discolor the teeth are usually excellent candidates for veneers.  Veneers are also effective in fixing chipped or worn front teeth, and are the best way to close gaps and misaligned teeth without using orthodontic procedures (braces).
