Dental Veneers

What is a Dental Veneer?

Dental veneers, made of porcelain or composite resin, are used in cosmetic dentistry to modify the shape and color of teeth. The veneer is a thin layer that may be applied using a composite or shaped in a laboratory using either composite or porcelain and then applied to the tooth.

The veneer may be a thin shell of porcelain that is etched and then bonded to the enamel of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are less likely to stain and are more durable than composites.

Is any of the tooth removed?

To avoid making the tooth appear too large and bulky, a small amount of the tooth must be removed to make room for the veneer.

Why is a dental veneer used?

Dental Veneers can play an important role in cosmetic dentistry. In skilled hands, veneers are used to improve the appearance of teeth, but also to close spaces or gaps, helping to achieve a beautiful smile.

Teeth can become worn out, crooked, crack, change color, and gaps can form over time. All of these may be addressed using veneers that bring pleasing size, shape, and color, restoring attractiveness.
