Veneers at Heritage Dental

Family Dentist in Pottstown PA

The Solution for Cracked, Chipped, and Stained Teeth

Veneers are an incredibly versatile cosmetic treatment, perfect for those who wish to correct cosmetic dental flaws. Think of veneers as an ultra-thin natural-colored shell that covers your teeth. This treatment will help correct imperfections such as…

  • Stained teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Teeth that are undersize compared to the rest of your mouth
  • Misaligned teeth with small gaps and “black triangles’ near the gum

Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only applied to the part of the tooth that is visible when talking or smiling. The procedure typically requires two appointments because the veneers must first be fabricated at a dental laboratory.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.

Veneers aren’t the ideal choice for everyone. If you’re suffering from advanced tooth decay or other dental health issues, our cosmetic dentist may recommend another option like dental implants or natural tooth-colored crowns.
