When your smile is damaged, flawed, or has lost its sparkle, veneers offer a simple way to enhance your appearance. They're one of the many cosmetic dentistry services and treatments offered by your Fargo, ND, dentists, Dr. Jon Anderson, Dr. Brad Anderson, and Dr. Joshua Breding of Anderson Dental.

What are veneers?

Veneers address flaws that are noticeable when you smile or speak. The tooth-shaped shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement and become a permanent part of your smile. Veneers are made of porcelain or plastic and look just like tooth enamel.

Your dentist won't have to make any major changes to your teeth before you receive veneers. In fact, they may only need to remove a tiny amount of enamel to prepare your teeth. Your veneers will be made from an impression of your mouth to ensure a comfortable, natural fit.

Who can benefit from veneers?

Veneers have been made popular by TV and movie actors who wear them to whiten their smiles, but the restorations have many other uses in addition to whitening. Do you have a tooth that looks a little odd? Adding a veneer will make an oddly shaped, crooked, or twisted tooth look more uniform. The restorations can also lengthen short teeth.

If grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep wore them down, your dentist may recommend a nightguard during your appointment at the Fargo, ND, dental office. Nightguards protect your veneers and teeth from damage caused by grinding.

Are you self-conscious about the gap between your front teeth? Once your dentist adds veneers to your teeth, you'll soon forget that space ever existed. Veneers also conceal minor damage and flaws. They're an excellent solution if you have chips, discolorations, shallow cracks, pits, or bumps in your enamel.

Veneers are a popular whitening option because they're available in so many shades of white. In fact, you can choose just how bright your smile will be when you whiten with veneers.
