Dental Veneers

Veneers

Veneers offer a natural-looking cosmetic enhancement that can significantly transform your smile.

They can be applied to one or multiple teeth for various aesthetic reasons, including:

  • Correcting gaps between teeth
  • Adjusting uneven lengths
  • Aligning slightly misaligned teeth
  • Correcting discoloration
  • Restoring chipped teeth
  • Addressing minor crookedness
  • Altering size or shape

Veneers cover the front surface of the tooth and slightly wrap around the sides and biting edge. Typically, each tooth receiving a veneer undergoes careful preparation before the veneer is fabricated and placed. This preparation involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the natural tooth in the areas that will be covered by the veneer, ensuring a seamless fit with the tooth's contours. Veneers are attached using a strong bonding material that hardens under a specialized light.

There are several types of veneers available:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Considered the most durable and aesthetically pleasing, these veneers are custom-made in a lab to match the dentist's specifications. They mimic the natural enamel's look and properties, offering customized size, color, shape, and fit.
  • Composite Veneers: Made from composite resin, these veneers are more affordable than porcelain ones. While they can improve tooth color, size, or shape, they may not last as long as porcelain veneers and are susceptible to staining.
  • Instant Veneers: These prefabricated resin veneers come in various sizes and shapes but lack customization. They are not recommended as they do not match the quality, appearance, or durability of custom veneers.
