There was a time when a cracked tooth could bring no positive changes. However, with the advancement of dental veneers, you can now conceal the original tooth with a version that can look and feel even better than the original. On top of that, you can cover teeth that are perfectly healthy, just to upgrade them to more aesthetically beautiful versions of themselves.
Dental veneers are strong and durable, and have a natural-looking surface. Less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or cap. Even though they can be stained, it is much harder to do so. They are custom-crafted for each individual tooth, and can last 5-15 years when properly cared for. They consist of extremely thin, yet extremely durable shells that are bonded onto the front of your teeth. They can correct flaws in your smile, such as slightly misaligned, stained, discolored, cracked, or chipped teeth, and can even be custom designed to color match your teeth. When done correctly by a licensed professional, they are near-impossible to notice.
