If it seems like popular culture and social media are full of impossibly happy and confident people showing off perfect smiles, the reality is that many people admit to hating or being embarrassed by what their teeth look like. One study found that over 40% of people surveyed would change something about their smile, and almost 30% said they avoided smiling in pictures for social media because of their teeth. Wherever you fall on the spectrum, living with damaged teeth is not an obligation. Some of the most common cosmetic dental issues can be repaired quickly and affordably with veneers.

Many people put off dental treatment and cosmetic improvements due to embarrassment, fear, or even misconceptions about the time, cost, and even pain that might be involved in cosmetic dental work. But the truth is that in some cases, a single appointment with a minimally invasive treatment like veneers is all that it will take to drastically improve damaged teeth, depending on the problem.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
A veneer is made of a translucent, razor thin layer of porcelain designed to look and feel like tooth enamel. They are custom designed for each person, and can be used to change the size, shape, and color of a tooth. With proper oral hygiene and dental care, veneers have been known to last five to ten years or longer. Some of the problems that veneers can be used to correct include:
- Chipped and cracked teeth
- Uneven or different size teeth
- Stains and discolorations
