While not every person is born with a perfect smile, qualities such as straightness, cleanliness or whiteness of teeth come to mind. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, people can change the smile they were born with into a smile they love.
Teeth that are too short can appear to be disproportionate to the visible gums and lips. Genetics will determine the size of your teeth, but grinding or clenching could also cause significant wear to your teeth. Additionally, injury can also lead to shorter teeth. Dental veneers are often a good option for adding length to the teeth, however its important to comprehensively evaluate your oral health before deciding the best option for you.

What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom teeth veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Will dental veneers look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.
Dr. Burgmeier will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
