Veneers: Veneers are conservative preparations often not requiring anesthesia and can treat very discolored teeth, anterior root canal teeth&teeth with the biting edge worn or missing. If a patient can bleach i recommend the bleaching. If a patient has rotated teeth i recommend orthodontics to get a straight smile as nothing is better than your enamel.

Veneers: Veneers are thin laminates of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth. They can change color , shape and contour of the teeth. Veneers can also close spacers between teeth. It is always best to have the teeth in the best alignment before placing veneers. Sometimes we recommend braces before veneers.

MANY problems: Veneers can give you a whiter smile. Veneers are most frequently used to close gaps or fix the rough, crooked edges of teeth. Make sure to visit a cosmetic dentist, as the design of how it will be done makes a big difference in the overall results. Make sure you have good communication with your cosmetic dentist about what you are expecting in the final results.

Many things: Veneers can correct color, size, shape, and spaces in teeth. They can also strengthen a weak tooth, and restore a tooth with damaged enamel.

Dark teeth: Veneers can cover dark teeth, broken down teeth, unattractive teeth, or simply to give you a hollywood smile.

See below: Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size. They can treat discolored, broken, worn down, chipped, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped and teeth that have spaces between them.

They can repair some cavities. Veneer is a vague term.They can range from a simple "veneer" to a 3/4 crown depending on the amount of tooth structure removed to achieve your desired goal.

Several things: Veneers can correct color deviations, surface texture issues, shape malformations, and shape and length enhancement. Veneers can transform a smile by brightening the teeth, by re-shaping the teeth, and by lengthening teeth.
