Do you hesitate to smile? Are embarrassed by a chipped or discolored tooth? Do you ever wonder what can you do to improve your smile’s aesthetic appeal? If so, dental veneers may be the solution you need.

Did you know that veneers can be used to address a wide variety of issues? You see, veneers are wafer-thin shells that our dentist can shape to match the tone, color, and shape of your teeth. These shells will then be fused to your teeth, allowing our team to cover flaws such as discolored, cracked, and uneven teeth.

However, there are individuals who are often confused by the difference between veneers and implants. While both are designed to match the appearance of your teeth, implants are vastly different than veneers. While veneers are used to fuse to your teeth, implants are designed to completely replace a missing tooth. Sadly, while implants are especially useful because of their longevity, they can’t be used to improve the appearance of existing teeth. In other words, in order to enjoy the cosmetic benefits of implants, you’ll need to be missing a tooth. If you have one or more severely damaged teeth, removing and replacing them may be the best options—though most dentists recommend preserving natural teeth whenever possible. This makes veneers are valuable choice.
