Veneers: More Than Just Cosmetic Treatment

Do you have discolored or damaged teeth that are causing you embarrassment? Veneers can provide a cost-effective solution to this problem. Veneers are a thin layer of tooth-colored porcelain placed over the front of your tooth to improve its look and protect the surface from damage. Dental veneers can restore the look of your teeth give you a beautiful smile.

 Veneers Help a Range of Problems

Veneers are often used in cosmetic dentistry to give a uniform look to the teeth. Whether you have one stained tooth that is drawing unwanted attention or have several stained teeth, dental veneers can cover them and provide a clean, natural look. Aside from stained teeth, veneers can help if you:

  • Have unnaturally small teeth
  • Have teeth with unwanted gaps that cannot be treated with orthodontics
  • Have teeth with wear and tear
  • Have spaces to be filled from gum recession

The end result is a better bite, stronger teeth and improved aesthetics.

How Veneers Work

Veneers are custom molded to fit your mouth and the teeth that are being treated. When you come for the application of your veneers, a small amount of the tooth's enamel is removed to allow the veneers to fit into the mouth properly. A light-sensitive resin is placed on your tooth, and then the veneer is applied. This produces minimal discomfort, but if you feel anxious about the procedure, we do offer a conscious sedation option.

Because of the lower overall cost of veneers compared to crowns and bridges, these are often the preferred choice for patients who are looking to improve their smile and strengthen their teeth. If you have been considering veneers as a solution to your stained, misaligned or damaged teeth, contact us for an appointment. Because we handle all treatments in-house and use a local lab, we will be able to place your veneers quickly, improving your smile and your confidence.

"They are the BEST! I love coming here!"

"About 1 1/2 years ago, I was referred by a truck driver to see Dr. Battikhi. It was the best thing I ever did. My teeth were really bad and Dr. Battikhi suggested implants for my bottom teeth. Dr. Battikhi and his staff are wonderful, fun, kind and caring people. They are the BEST! I love coming here! Thank you all for everything you have done for me!"   ~ Gloria G.
