Dentistry Services by Boyd and Messerly DDS
Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of dental porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. They can conceal a range of cosmetic issues and last for several years. Some types of veneers require the removal of a small amount of your enamel while other fit right over the top of your teeth. Dr. Boyd & Dr. Messerly will discuss these options with you and provide a recommendation of which one will give you the best results.

Dental bonding uses cosmetic resin to cover or repair flaws. The resin is applied by Dr. Boyd & Dr. Messerly and then shaped and molded before it is cured. Once cured, the resin is difficult to distinguish from your own enamel and will last a long time. One of the benefits of dental bonding is that the process is relatively inexpensive and can be completed in a single day.

Some of the issues we address using these treatments include:



Whitening-resistant discoloration
Chips
Cracks that are primarily cosmetic in nature
Widely spaced teeth
Narrow teeth
Short or eroded teeth
Damage to the enamel such as ridges or markings left after orthodontic
   treatment
Misalignments
Unusually shaped teeth

Which treatment is right mostly depends on the extent of the damage. For smaller repairs, dental bonding is usually a better option because it requires less alteration of your tooth and can be completed on the same day.If you have more extensive damage that needs to be fixed, veneers may be the right choice.
