Do you have small cracked or chipped teeth, small gaps or even discoloration that make you self-conscious about smiling? If so, you need to speak with your dentist about porcelain veneers so you can transform your smile.
When it comes to your teeth, they play a major role in your engagement with others. When you have problems that make you self-conscious about others seeing them, you just might be spending more time trying to hide your smile than you do focusing on the interaction at hand. Dental veneers can make sure you never worry about others seeing your teeth again – even if you are unhappy with the overall size and shape of your individual teeth.
Veneers are porcelain shells that fit over the parts of your teeth that are visible, transforming them into straight, white undamaged teeth. These shells are bonded directly to your existing teeth, creating natural-looking surfaces that feel just like the real thing.
When you choose porcelain veneers, your dentist at Drs. Galligan & Villa Dental Studio will have to make some adjustments to your natural teeth. This will involve removing a very slight amount of the enamel of your tooth so that the veneer will fit properly without changing your normal bite. Once you’ve had your teeth prepped, you will have to come back for one more visit so the dental veneers can be attached to your teeth after they are created in the lab. Once attached, your dentist will make any final adjustments that might be needed to make your teeth perfect.
The entire two-visit process of having porcelain veneers applied to your teeth will result in a smile that you will love showing off to others. When you choose veneers, you can expect a number of improvements, including:
- A smile that is brighter and whiter
- Better symmetry of your teeth, including improved size depending on your original preferences and needs
- Elimination of any gaps, which helps you avoid further orthodontic care such as braces
- Replacing the appearance of cracked, chipped or discolored teeth with a brighter, healthier smile

We want to help you get started on transforming your mouth into a stunning smile that will make sure you never have to worry about hiding from others, all with the application of porcelain veneers.
