Dental veneers are very thin restorations, typically made of ceramic or porcelain, that are bonded to the front teeth to enhance the shape and color of your smile. Veneers are custom designed by a professional lab, durable and made to be resistant to staining. Veneers are both an excellent and conservative treatment option that involves little to no treatment preparation.

We may suggest veneers to:

  • Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Whiten teeth that are deeply stained or discolored
  • Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
  • Correct slightly angled teeth
  • Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn or fractured

The process of getting dental veneers typically involves two appointments. At the first visit, the teeth are prepared, color matches are made and impressions are taken so that the lab can fabricate the veneers.

At the second visit, the veneers are tried on to make sure you are happy with the color and aesthetics. Then, a bonding procedure is used to adhere the restorations to the front of your natural teeth.

Home care instructions will be provided and routine hygiene visits will be encouraged to help maintain the longevity of the veneers.
