What Are Veneers?

When teeth are severely stained, worn or misaligned, veneers can be used to correct a number of problems. Veneers are a permanent solution to improve your smile when whitening alone just won't do.

You may be asking what exactly are veneers? Veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the front part of teeth. There are two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin. With porcelain veneers, the dentist removes a thin layer of enamel to create space for the veneers. Next, the dentist makes a mold of the teeth in order to custom-make the veneers. With composite resin veneers, the dentist uses a mild chemical on the front surface of the tooth to make it a little rough, this helps the composite resin to stick to the enamel of the tooth. The dentist then puts the composite resin on the tooth in layers, followed by a polish. Porcelain veneers generally last longer than composite resin veneers.

Below are a few stories from our patients with veneers.

"When it comes to confidence in life nothing comes close to having a smile that you love. If the smile you have isn't adding to your confidence I can transform it into your best asset. Don't take my word for it, my patients say it best. "
