Dental veneers are a simple and convenient cosmetic dentistry procedure that can have a dramatic effect on both your smile and overall appearance. Whether you have minor cosmetic damage such as a chipped or cracked tooth that needs to be repaired, or you want to change the size or shape of your teeth for aesthetic improvement, veneers may be the right option for you.

Makeover Your Smile with Dental Veneers in Peoria, AZ
If you've ever admired your favorite celebrity's seemingly "perfect" teeth, chances are that they've gotten a little help from veneers. Typically made from a thin layer of porcelain, veneers are bonded to the surface of your teeth to change their size, shape, or color. Some of the uses for porcelain veneers include:
- Fix mild to moderate chips and cracks
- Cover discolored or stained teeth
- Strengthen a fractured tooth
- Close gaps and spacing
- Seal a tooth after root canal therapy
Even if you don't have a specific problem that needs "fixing," many people are simply unhappy with the way their teeth look. Veneers are a fast and minimally invasive option available to anyone looking for a new and improved smile. They usually take several appointments—one to take an impression of your teeth and another to place the veneers. In some cases, a thin layer of enamel may have to be removed to ensure a smooth fit.
Once in place, you care for your veneers just like natural teeth, that is with regular brushing, flossing, and preventive care. On average, veneers can last from five to ten years, but often much longer.
