Veneers are like fake fingernails--they can change tooth shape, fill spaces, lengthen them, cover fillings, restore worn areas, etc.

Usually a thin custom piece of porcelain. It is made to improve the way one or more teeth look after the front tooth surface has been prepared. These improvements can be correcting shape, discolor, closing gaps, straightening misaligned teeth, lengthening worn shortened teeth and other ways of making the teeth more attractive. A highly trained dentist will be able to properly diagnose and treat.

To change the color or shape of front teeth. It is a great procedure in the right hands for the right situation. It can also cover small old fillings. If the filling you want to change the color of is too large or the color change you want is too much, you may need a different type of restoration.

Adding a permanent color change and bringing back youth to warn down teeth are my two main requests. Veneers can also be used in trauma cases when teeth are fractured. We can also, in a limited amount, use them to create "instant orthodontics" by making the teeth to appear to be in better alignment. They almost always enhance a persons confidence in their appearance giving them a compelling smile.

Definition of a veneer is a thin decorative covering. In dentistry we use either a composite shaped directly on the teeth, or porcelain, lab designed. Both are bonded (chemically cemented) to the teeth. They both act to cover discolored, misshapen, fractured, malaligned, ugly, etc. Teeth. Best part about porcelain over composite is you can pick the shape, shade and style and they last longer.

Dental veneers can whiten and reshape, they can close spaces or gaps, they can make the colors of teeth more uniform, they can "straighten" teeth, they can even out the smile, they can lengthen teeth, and they can re-create a smile, among other things....

Veneers are used to change the shape, color, size, alignment of front teeth. They usually are an elective procedure that people request from a dentist to give them a more attractive smile. A better smile usually lends to more confidence in how you see yourself and how other see you.
