What Are Veneers?

Posted .

There are tons of different cosmetic dentistry options you have immediately available when looking to change the appearance of your teeth. As with a lot of cosmetic work, there are certain procedures that are more popular now than they once were. That means some don’t get as much attention as they should. Dental veneers fall into that category. They’re effective in changing a smile, but few people actually know what they are. Let’s take a moment to fix that.

What are they?
Dental veneers are essentially wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are shaped and colored to look just like the outward-facing surface of your real teeth. A dentist has years of experience and schooling in crafting these veneers to look so real that only a professional like Dr. Joe Jeppson can tell a tooth with a veneer from a natural one.

What’s the process like?
You’ll first schedule an appointment with our team here at Jeppson Dental. We’re pleased to offer dental veneers to our patients in the Provo, Utah, area. Once the appointment is set, you’ll be evaluated for how many veneers you need, and measurements will be taken to ensure a proper, exact fit.

Then, once the veneers are created, they’ll be cemented into place and polished. You’ll leave our office with a brand new smile! To set up your appointment today, give us a call at 801-356-7701.
