What's keeping you from the smile of your dreams? Perhaps it's a chipped tooth, a slight gap, or teeth that simply will not whiten. Dental veneers can address these and other problems and do so faster than a lot of other treatments. Not everyone may be a candidate for the procedure, but they have improved many smiles. To find out more contact Dr. Jeffrey Mason of Mason Dental Associates in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ.

Understanding Dental Veneers

Veneers work in a similar way to dental crowns in that they are tooth-shaped and are adhered to your tooth. But unlike crowns, because they are much thinner, they do not require nearly as much of your tooth to be reshaped. They can also last a long time with proper care.

You may be warned against biting very hard foods or using your teeth as a tool for opening things, but these warnings stand even for your natural teeth. Good dental habits remain important as well since veneers require otherwise healthy teeth for the treatment, and because your teeth beneath the veneers are still susceptible to decay.

How Veneers Can Help

Teeth that are worn, cracked, chipped, or in some way misshapen can benefit from dental veneers. They are also an excellent option for slight gaps in your smile and for teeth that do not respond to professional whitening. You can have a single veneer placed, or only a few if you are not looking for a full transformation.

They may not be the treatment for you if you have severe bite problems, are looking to correct larger gaps, or some of your teeth are too damaged. Your dentist may recommend alternative treatments if any of this is the case.
