What They Are
Dental veneers are very thin sheets of tooth colored material that adhere to the front of your natural teeth. The most commonly used material in dental veneers is porcelain as it achieves a natural-looking finish and long-lasting function. Porcelain veneers are very similar to natural teeth so you can finally be proud of your smile again.
For some patients veneers require a bit of preparation that involves removing a thin layer of enamel so that the veneers fit in your mouth properly, not obstructing any of the surrounding teeth. Other types of porcelain veneers require less preparation, but both are then bonded to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are made for you, customized so you can feel confident in your smile. Veneers not only look better, but they can also benefit you in other ways such a stain resistance and the addressing of a number of cosmetic dental problems.
