What are Dental Veneers?

added on: December 18, 2015

Crosby Smiles - VeneersDental veneers provide a cosmetic change to the look of your front teeth. At Crosby Smiles, Dr. Crosby is able to change the look of your teeth dramatically using dental veneers.

How do they change my look?

Dental veneers cover your teeth, because of this, Dr. Crosby is able to change the permanent tooth underneath, and can give you a veneer that:

  • Straightens
  • Fills in gaps
  • Lengthens
  • Shortens
  • Whitens
  • Hides chips
  • Hides fractures

You can come to us with discolored, crooked, fractured teeth, and leave with a beautiful looking smile using dental veneers.

Are there options with dental veneers?

Yes! Veneers come in a variety of materials and styles that Dr. Crosby can discuss the pros and cons of each with you. Materials such as porcelain, composite, Lumineers and CEREC veneers are all available. Additionally, there are both permanent and non-permanent styles available. Permanent means that your teeth are permanently altered to fit the veneer. This is the standard, traditional style seen. Dr. Crosby reduces the natural tooth structure to allow space and fit a traditional veneer. Non-Permanent does not alter the natural tooth structure. Using an ultra-thin veneer, Dr. Crosby places the thin shell directly over the face of your tooth without reducing or reshaping the natural structure.

Are Dental Veneers Worth the Cost?

The value of dental veneers is a personal decision. You will have to consider the costs of other procedures, if necessary, to get the look you want. Maybe your teeth are crooked and you want to have them appear straighter without braces. Braces are costly and timely. What’s the cost difference? Maybe you are embarrassed of chips, stains, or gaps, what cost would make it worthwhile to take that feeling away? Don’t fear potential costs, contact our office for a consultation and see what Dr. Crosby can do for you.
