Hiding Your Smile? Why Not Hide Your Smile Imperfections With Dental Veneers Instead?


Dental veneers are made from a thin, shell-like material and cover a tooth entirely. Veneers are typically made from porcelain, though there are other materials they can be made from as well. They are used to permanently cover damaged or unsightly teeth.

Because the veneer procedure is fairly straightforward and simple, many patients opt for receiving them as a means for achieving their ideal smile – but veneers also work for improving overall mouth, gum, and teeth health as well.


Traditionally, a patient’s teeth that would be covered would need to be shaved and filed down in order to fit the veneers. While this method is still used, more modern methods have eliminated the need to file down your teeth beforehand and instead can fit over your existing teeth like a shell with very little tooth preparation required. This ultimately results in a simpler and less intensive application process.


Do Veneers Function Like Normal Teeth?


Veneers are used commonly for aesthetic purposes in order to achieve a patient’s cosmetic goals. However, they can also function like normal teeth, giving them a sturdiness and strength that can help to protect the mouth and gums in the long-term.

If you are worried about the vulnerability of your veneers after application, fear not! At Woodland Lakes Dental we provide custom veneers made to fit the shape of your mouth that are made of durable and long-lasting material for a natural feel and look.

Veneers can help to:

  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Close gaps or cover chips
  • Hide deep discolorations and worn-down teeth
