Veneers Are a Natural-Looking Cosmetic Treatment That Can Provide a Dramatic Smile Makeover
Dental veneers can help you improve your smile. They are a stain-resistant, resin-based composite or porcelain that can easily whiten your smile, fix minor cosmetic problems, and replace enamel that has been damaged.
Dental veneers can be applied to one or more teeth, giving you that smile makeover you have always wanted. With dental veneers you can finally:
- Fix those gaps between your teeth
- Eliminate the uneven length of your teeth
- Align teeth that are slightly crooked
- Whiten your smile
- Eliminate your chipped teeth
- Change the size or shape of your teeth
Actual Clients Before & After Photos
Right now, there are three different types of veneers. Typically, the dentists at Island Dental Associates use either porcelain or composite veneers, based on your dental needs. The types of veneers available include:
Porcelain veneers are long-lasting and a more aesthetic type of veneer. Porcelain veneers are created in a lab to the exact specifications of your Island Dental dentist. They mimic the look of natural enamel by using multiple thin layers of porcelain to create the veneer.They are custom made to match the size, color, shape, and fit of your teeth.
Using composite resin, composite veneers can be made in our dental lab. They are less expensive than porcelain veneers but can change the appearance of your tooth color, size, or shape and can be a more effective solution for your dental needs. They are as customized as porcelain veneers, but are susceptible to staining and do not last as long as porcelain veneers.
Instant veneers are made of prefabricated resin and are not custom-made to the shape and fit of your teeth. While they do come in different sizes and shapes, we don’t recommend instant veneers for our patients because they don’t provide the look, quality, or durability that you find in custom-made veneers.
