If you have a tooth that has a cosmetic dental problem, you may be a good candidate for having it fixed with a dental veneer. At Granite View Dental, our Sandy UT dentist, Dr. William J. Ellingson, will assess your tooth and determine whether it can have its appearance fixed with a porcelain veneer.
Porcelain veneers are used to fix many different types of cosmetic tooth problems. A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is made to cover the front of a tooth. The veneer is permanently attached to the tooth and is made to last for many years. Although the veneer is extremely thin, it is also extremely strong. However, a veneer will not strengthen your tooth, so it is only use to fix the appearance of the tooth. If our dentist determines that your tooth does indeed have a structural problem, he may instead recommend that you get a dental crown to fix the appearance of the tooth, and strengthen it at the same time. However, if our Sandy UT dentist determines that the cosmetic dental problem does not have a structural component to it, you are probably an excellent candidate to have it fixed with a dental veneer. A patient can get one dental veneer to fix the appearance of a single tooth, or can get many dental veneers so that they attain the smile they have long dreamt of. Porcelain veneers can be used to fixed the appearance of: teeth that are too short; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are discolored and cannot be fixed with traditional dental whitening methods; and many other cosmetic dental problems.
