What are Veneers?

What are Veneers?: A Guide

Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Issues like worn enamel or uneven spacing can affect our dental health and hurt our self-confidence. A natural-looking, beautiful smile can be achieved through the custom fabrication of porcelain veneers. 


What are veneers?

According to the American Dental Association, “Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth.”

In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, veneers can convert unattractive enamel, improve spacing, and balance shapes and proportions. Veneers can provide more strength in a minimally invasive way by covering the edges or a smaller area of the teeth.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care and regular dental wellness visits, porcelain veneers can last decades.
