Enhance your smile: 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.

Smile by Design:
Dental veneers are porcelain additions usually to the outer surface of the teeth to correct discoloration, malpositioned teeth or tooth spacing and chipped or broken teeth where crowning may not be needed. The replaced porcelain can build the tooth out further which will broaden the smile, or if sufficient tooth structure is removed the finished result may be exactly where it was originally.

Great question!: I would expect little in the way of discomfort. However, I would expect quite a bit of a change in how you manage your front teeth. I would recommend wearing a night guard, I would not bite into hard foods like apples, corn on the cob, beef ribs, celery, and other harder foods. I would also manage habits like holding nails in your teeth, biting your nails, etc. You do want to protect these.... ...Read more

Unsure of question..: If you are asking what your tooth/teeth will look like after "filed down" for a veneer, it varies. At times the surface mainly needs to be roughened.

If too much tooth structure is removed the resultant bond of the veneer to the tooth may be compromised. ...Read more
Numb: Expect the dentist to numb the tooth with an injection. Then a small amount of enamel will be removed from the tooth with a drill.

In difficult cases, sometimes you need two veneers. Still your best results come from a great cosmetic practice. ...Read more
