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 alternative if you want to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of your 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, your prosthodontist will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your prosthodontist may need to conservatively prepare your tooth to achieve the desired aesthetic result.
When placed, you'll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth. While veneers are stain resistant, your prosthodontist may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.
