You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. With veneers, you can easily correct your teeth's imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, the doctor needs to conservatively prepare your teeth to make room for the porcelain covering. Temporary veneers will be placed as well an impression will be taken to be send to the dental lab to create your custom veneers. A second appointment will be required to cement the new veneers to achieve the desired aesthetic result.
When your veneers are placed, you'll be pleased to see that they look like your natural teeth. While veneers are stain-resistant, the doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
