VENEERS

Veneers provide a whiter and smoother look to the surface of teeth for an affordable celebrity grin.  Veneers can be placed on badly stained, oddly shaped or crooked teeth to enhance uniformity.

 

WHAT ARE VENEERS?

 

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape.  Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or on chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked teeth.  Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.

 

ADVANTAGES OF VENEERS

 

  • Little or no anesthesia is needed.
  • Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding.
  • Veneers resist permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking.
