Veneers at Le Mars Dental Center
There are several cosmetic procedures performed at Le Mars Dental Center that can enhance your smile. Veneers correct problems like a chipped tooth or gap, excessive wear and even stained or discolored teeth. Two options for one or more teeth include dental veneers.
Veneers are thin, porcelain covers that are placed over your teeth. They are custom-made to fit onto a tooth and create a natural appearance that blends in with your surrounding teeth. Veneers are strong and resistant to fading or staining. A small amount of your natural tooth is removed so the veneer fits snugly, giving the patient a smooth, even smile for life.
Composite veneers are a cosmetic procedure where a safe and specialized resin is applied directly to the surface of the tooth. When the resin cures (hardens), it is polished and shaped to match the surrounding teeth.
Composite veneers are a less invasive solution than porcelain veneers. The procedure is simple, quick and easy and can usually be completed in one visit. In areas of the mouth where there is less bite force or impact, composite veneers can last from 3 to 10 years.
