Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.
Veneers are routinely used to treat:
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that are chipped, broken or worn down
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process.
Veneers can transform your smile. Having a new smile can gave patient the confidence to smile.
