What are Veneers?
Veneers can help improve the size, shape, and overall appearance of a smile. They are made from a thin laminate that is permanently bonded to each patient’s teeth so that they look very natural. They are strong and resistant to things like stains and chipping so they can be treated just like real teeth. They are especially useful for patients who have large gaps between their teeth, crooked teeth, broken or chipped teeth, or stained teeth.
Are Veneers Right For You?
Veneers are a great option for many patients seeking to enhance their smile. Patients need to understand and be aware that getting veneers is a big commitment and will last for many decades. Finding an experienced dentist trained in modern application of veneers is essential to achieving the best results.
Botched Dental Veneers
At R Dental Group, we've treated our fair share of 'botched' dental veneers from other dentists, helping our patients regain their beautiful smile. Here are the main causes of botched veneers:
Poor porcelain work - This is the most common, teeth look fake and void of life. The solution for that is the replacement of the veneers with close attention to choosing the appropriate lab technician.
Bleeding gums around your veneers - Either there is cement underneath that needs to be cleaned or the margins of the porcelain veneers are not flush with the tooth, or there is an impingement on the underlying gums and bone that is resulting in an inflammatory response.
Lack of symmetry and harmony in how the veneers are shaped.
