What are Veneers?
One of the most popular and effective developments in cosmetic dentistry, veneers are thin, custom made casings that cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers are used to correct uneven teeth, worn enamel, discoloration, chipped teeth and irregular spacing, and can last over a long time. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
After a thorough examination, which may include X-rays and taking impressions, your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Then we will take an impression and send it to a laboratory where the veneers will be precisely fabricated. During this time, we will provide you with temporary veneers. Finally, the veneer's size and color are given one last adjustment before they are bonded to your teeth on your second visit.
What Are the Advantages of Veneers?
Veneers will give your teeth a more natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm; Furthermore, they are stain resistant and color stable.. This non-invasive approach will leave you with a healthy and beautiful new smile.

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:
While inlays and onlays cover different structure surfaces and fillings fill in the empty interior spaces, crowns cover the tooth completely. A part of your tooth remains but is essentially "rebuilt" to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.
While porcelain crowns certainly can improve the look of a tooth or multiple teeth, it is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth - not simply for cosmetic purposes.
