What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin coverings that adhere to the front surface of a tooth. The shell mimics the look of natural teeth. We can use the veneer procedure to correct several dental issues, such as permanent teeth discoloration, chipped teeth, misshapen teeth, and uneven upper teeth.

You can choose to get a single veneer to fix a minor issue or get an ultimate makeover by undergoing the procedure for multiple teeth. As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, veneers are an option for a straight, symmetrical smile.

Common materials for veneers include tooth-colored porcelain and ceramic materials. Many people prefer veneers because the thin porcelain shell is incredibly durable and doesn’t stain. 

Veneer Process

Getting veneers begins with a trip to our dental office, where we will examine your teeth and gums. If we determine the treatment is best for you, we then take an impression of the teeth undergoing the procedure. 

We will remove a thin layer of tooth enamel from the tooth to allow the veneers to fit comfortably on the surface during the next appointment. You will then be fitted with a temporary to protect your teeth until the day that we bond your veneers into place.
