Restorations come in all shapes and sizes. If you have suffered severe damage to teeth, restorations can be given. If you have lost teeth, replacements can be given. If you are suffering from a downturn in oral health, there are restorations for that as well. However, one of the most appealing restorations an individual can receive is through visual enhancements to your smile. This specific field of dentistry is commonly referred to as cosmetic dentistry. In many cases, there are no better options for enhancing the look of your smile than dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin, yet durable shells that are directly placed atop the fronts of teeth. In order to be held firmly in place, a small amount of tooth enamel will need to be removed. However, the amount of enamel removed for a dental veneer placement is a lot less than for a dental crown placement. Although, dental veneers do not cover up all sides of a tooth, so you will need to continue to care for a tooth as the backsides of the tooth will still be exposed.

Thanks to the customization options of a dental veneer, a tooth can be reshaped and crafted as needed. A veneer can be designed for each individual tooth you desire. This can take below average miles and turn them into the pinnacle of oral health aesthetics. Dental veneers can even be made to look better than what nature alone could provide. What’s more, since they are customizable, they can be shaped and crafted to ensure maximum longevity, which can easily last up to an entire decade before a replacement may be required.
