Veneers for Teeth
Veneers help improve your smile
Dental veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front of individual teeth, giving the appearance of a full and healthy mouth and smile. They’re crafted for individual patients to accommodate your unique tooth color, sizes, and shapes.
Have you looked in the mirror lately and grimaced at a growing collection of dental stains, chips, gaps, or otherwise misshapen teeth? Have you resigned yourself to hiding your smile for the rest of your life so you can avoid negative comments or feeling embarrassed when in public?
This doesn’t have to be the case! Dental veneers are the perfect solution for unsightly smiles. Dr. Sharlyn Ziprick, DDS, is Redlands’ premiere source for this excellent dental cosmetic option, and we’re prepared to provide the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
In order for a veneer to be bonded to a tooth, we will remove about .5 millimeters from the tooth’s surface, providing space for the wafer to be placed.
Veneers are most often composed of two main materials:
- Porcelain – The main advantage of a porcelain veneer is its ability to resist future stains and more naturally match the appearance of the tooth.
- Resin composite – While not as stain-resistant, resin composites are often sturdier and thinner than porcelain veneers, and thus require less original tooth material to be removed for the bonding process.
A major advantage of veneers over other cosmetic dentistry procedures is that is far less intensive. You don’t have to deal with more involved restorative dental cosmetic procedures such as crowns or bridges, yet you still get the benefit of greater aesthetic appeal with your smile.
