Veneers are thin, tooth colored shells that are bonded or cemented, to the front of the tooth. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Porcelain veneers are ideal for patients that have spaces between their front teeth or discoloration due to worn fillings or staining. Veneers last longer that bonded fillings and they have a high resistance of staining from coffee, tea, even cigarette smoking.
According to the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 99.7% of adults believe a smile is an important social asset. Veneers are an opportunity for a new smile which can help with confidence and self esteem. For some adults, a smile of their dreams.
Typically, veneers require at least three appointments. A consultation for diagnosis and treatment planning, preparing the teeth for the veneers and permanent bonding. Once completed, your smile may be one of your best investments.
