Craft the Perfect Smile with Dental Veneers

Unfortunately for some, teeth don’t always grow the way they are intended to. It’s not unusual to end up with misshapen teeth, and while this is normal and not necessarily life-threatening, they can cause embarrassment or self-consciousness in others. Some folks would resort to replacing all their disfigured teeth with dental implants, though for those who want something a little less invasive, there is the option of dental veneers.

Veneers are porcelain-like sleeves made to fit over teeth, masking the covered parts and replacing them with more appealing surfaces. These aesthetic fittings are offered exclusively by cosmetic dentists, and they come in two types: feldspathic and pressed-ceramic varieties. Those who plan to get veneers can schedule an appointment with their dentist at Wilkes Barre who to enlighten them more on these two options before they decide on one.

Dental implants require the dentist to pull out teeth and replace them with artificial teeth that are screwed into place, but veneers are completely non-invasive and only involve gluing them over the teeth they’re supposed to mask and enhance the appearance of. These veneers are hand-crafted and can be sculpted according to the patient’s preferences. Once installed, dentists can even file the veneers down for a better fit. You may not be born with a perfect smile, but with veneers, you can change all that and get teeth that can charm everyone you meet.
