Veneers are thin, durable coverings placed over your teeth. They have a realistic appearance and can improve the way your teeth look. They can be placed on a single tooth or multiple teeth, depending on the patient’s goals.
Veneers are created from an impression of the patient’s teeth, so the veneers are designed with a shape, size, and color that corresponds to how the patient’s natural teeth look.
What Are the Dental Issues Veneers Can Fix?
The cosmetic dental issues that veneers can resolve are:
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chips or cracks
- Teeth that are too small
- Teeth that are too large
What Are the Different Types of Veneers?
The most commonly used veneers are:
Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored. They are bonded to the surface of the tooth and hide imperfections. Moreover, they are stain-resistant, making them an ideal choice for teeth that are prone to staining or discoloration.
Composite veneers are a great treatment option for patients who have minor dental imperfections. Composite veneers are made from a dental-grade composite resin and cover imperfections like stains, cracks, or minor misalignment. Composite veneers are aesthetically appealing and can help patients enhance their smiles.
What Does the Veneers Procedure Entail?
A dental veneer procedure requires two visits to the dentist. During your first appointment, your teeth are cleaned and prepared. An impression is taken of your teeth and sent to a dental lab where the veneers are made. Until then, temporary veneers are placed on your teeth. When your final veneers are ready, you will be asked to return to the dentist’s office, where they are bonded to your teeth.

- Veneers provide a natural-looking smile
