If a discolored, worn, or chipped tooth has you feeling embarrassed about your smile, you might benefit from dental veneers. These thin, custom made ceramic shell pieces are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They cover your existing tooth structure to hide stained teeth, cracked or missing teeth, and more. Veneers can assist in improving the appearance of your smile by changing the color, shape, and size, of your teeth, while still looking natural. Best of all, they are staining resistant and provide little to no discomfort or change in your mouth.
During the procedure, a small amount of your original tooth's enamel must be removed. This helps create room for the veneer. A small amount of resin in applied between the tooth and the veneer and hardened using a special curing light. Over the years, adjustments and new veneers can be placed on your teeth as needed to keep your appearance looking great.
