What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin shells of tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, that are used to cover the front of teeth for aesthetic and practical purposes.
They are normally used to hide discoloration, are built on teeth that have been worn down or chipped or can be used to close gaps and fix uneven or malaligned teeth.
Improve Your Smile with Dental Veneers!
Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. The treatment is also a great option for individuals who want to make small changes to the shape of their teeth that do not warrant the fitting of a crown.
How are Dental Veneers Made and Placed?
The procedure includes x-rays and impressions of your mouth. Once our dentists know how to shape the veneer, the patient is placed under general anesthetic and some of the enamel will be removed from the specific tooth to make room for the veneer. Temporary veneers can be placed while the permanent veneers are made in a laboratory. This process can take up to two to four weeks. When ready, the veneers will be bonded to the front of the prepared tooth with dental cement. Any excess cement will be cleared up and any final adjustments will be made. Several visits after the procedure will be used to assess the placement and the gums response to the veneers.

What are the Advantages of Dental Veneers?
The advantages of undergoing the procedure is the restoration of your smile, the porcelain can be custom made to any shade to fit in with your natural teeth and porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. Dental veneers also do not require any special care as compared to other treatments except continued daily oral hygiene.
How long will Dental Veneers Last?
Although veneers last between 10 and 20 years, depending on how you care for them, they are more expensive than other options that use resin or plastic instead of porcelain that has to be made in a laboratory before being fitted.
