Made from thin, custom-made pieces of highly durable porcelain, veneers bond to the front of teeth and can instantly transform a smile. Many people consider veneers an easy option to achieve whiter, more uniform teeth, but veneers can also correct imperfections such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Too small or too large teeth
- Crooked or improperly formed teeth
- Discolored or heavily stained teeth
Veneers involve little to no anesthesia and usually require two office visits:
- To prepare each tooth’s surface for veneer application and make a mold of teeth to be fabricated in a laboratory setting
- To bond the veneer to each tooth, followed by a special light source used to set bonding cementWhile veneers may eventually need replacement, they are extremely resilient and with proper dental care can last for many years.
