If you watched the Hollywood Academy Awards this year, you may have noticed something about all of the smiling actors. They all have flawless teeth. If you’ve ever wanted a smile as beautiful as theirs, then you might want to consider getting dental veneers.

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that can repair many imperfections in your teeth. Chips, teeth that are slightly crooked, discolored, and minor cracks can all be repaired with dental veneers. They can make your teeth much more even and uniform, giving that Hollywood-perfect smile.

Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is fitted and bonded to the outer surface of your teeth. Dr. J. Richard Burch will match the shade of the veneer to the shade of your teeth. The porcelain of the veneer is not susceptible to tooth decay or to stains. You may wish to have a whitening treatment before getting veneers installed.

There are currently two varieties of veneer: porcelain veneers and resin. Porcelain veneers can be custom made and fitted to your teeth and can take 2-3 visits to your dentist to finish installing. Resin veneers and made from dental bonding material, and can be applied in a single visit. While less durable than porcelain, they can be touched up after the initial treatment.
