Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells designed to cover the front surface of a tooth for cosmetic purposes. Veneers are typically made of porcelain to match the shade of the surrounding teeth. At Spectacular Smiles, they are usually made from an impression of your teeth and are created in a dental laboratory before bonding to your tooth. Your Dentist in Frisco, TX may need to trim your natural teeth to ensure that your veneer fits well.
Types of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells that fit over the front of the teeth to correct cosmetic damage and enhance the appearance of your smile. Composite resin veneers are a more conservative option and are created in a lab to custom-fit the patient’s mouth. However, these typically don’t last as long as porcelain veneers.
Both options are incredibly natural looking and deliver beautiful results. Patients often choose either material based on the positioning of their natural teeth and aesthetic goals. For example, patients who want immediate smile improvement to correct chips, gaps, and other minor imperfections may choose composite resin veneers because they need less preparation before placement than porcelain veneers.

The Benefits of Veneers
One benefit of dental veneers is that they can fix the appearance of any smile. If you have crooked teeth, gaps between your teeth, or chipped teeth, then your dentist can use dental veneers to make your smile look perfect. You will no longer need to hide your imperfect smile in social situations with porcelain veneers. Instead, you will have a smile that you are proud to show off to friends, family, and coworkers! Dental veneers are a great way to transform your smile without investing in costly orthodontic treatments. Plus, once you get your veneers, you can care for them like natural teeth. Brush and floss daily and schedule regular appointments with your dentist for check-ups and professional cleanings to keep your dental health on track.
Another benefit of getting dental veneers is that they are long-lasting and durable. Many patients enjoy the benefits of their veneers for years before replacing them. Your dentist will use high-quality material to place each of your veneers, so you won’t have to worry about them breaking off in the future. Caring for your veneers is also simple, and they can last for decades with the proper care.
