What are Veneers?

Veneers are a thin, translucent coating made out of porcelain or resin (plastic). They are applied to the front teeth to improve their color, size, or shape. Veneers can help you achieve the smile you want.

Are Veneers Right for You?

Veneers can correct many dental problems including:

• Teeth discolored from medication or age
• Front teeth that are worn or chipped
• Gaps and other spaces between teeth
• Crooked teeth

The Procedure

Veneers may require 2 or 3 office visits from start to finish. We will first examine your teeth and then discuss what kind of veneers will be used. We will then choose the right veneer color for your new smith. Your teeth are prepared for veneers. Lastly, the veneers are bonded to your teeth.

Bonding of Veneers

Before bonding, we will fit the veneers on your teeth and check the color. Slight changes in veneer color can be made by varying the color of the cement. The surfaces of your teeth are then cleansed. The veneers are bonded to your teeth with special cement that is hardened with a high-intensity light. Any excess cement is removed. Finished veneers should feel comfortable.
