If you are faced with discolored, worn down, cracked or chipped teeth, one of the best dental procedures to correct these issues is having veneers applied. Embarrassing gaps between your teeth are also another opportunity to use veneers. There are stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, which are called composite veneers. These types of veneers will give you the longest wear because they are bonded to the tooth.
Bonding is another process that is available to you. It will accomplish some of the same things, but bonding doesn’t typically last that long. Your dentist will utilize a material that is strikingly similar to the enamel on your teeth. When it is applied, the material is shaped to fit the tooth and after it hardens it is polished.
There is an additional procedure called dental contouring and reshaping. This allows the dentist to alter the shape, length, or position of teeth. Contouring and reshaping can also restore chipped, cracked, crooked, or even overlapping teeth.
