In brief: Pretty teeth

Veneers improve the look of teeth.
A veneer can cover an unattractive tooth or teeth, or sometimes people cover alot of their teeth to simply have a better looking smile. Be wary, only do the dentistry that is needed. Have a few opinions before you do veneers, you be able to do other more conservative treatments that will last longer or be more cost effective.

In brief: Many times & reasons

If u r considering veneers, consult with your dentist to determine the right time and rationale.
This fairly quick treatment should be done after your smile has completely developed & you have stopped growing. Before you jump discuss: orthodontics, whitening, do the teeth really need crowns, are your gums in stellar health. If you still want veneers after your discussion, they may be perfect 4 u.

In brief: Anytime/Esthetics

People get veneers at anytime.
The most common reason is for esthetics. We can change the appearance of your smile in a significant way with porcelain veneers. The photo shows a patient that had veneers placed on 4 teeth.

In brief: Various reasons

Generally people that would like to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Some people are lucky and they are born with gorgeous teeth for those that are not they can have a beautiful white straight smile with porcelain veneers. Dark, stained, broken teeth, or misshaped teeth can be corrected with porcelain veneers. I have treated patients between the ages of 13 and 92. With veneers.

In brief: Many reasons

There are many reasons people get veneers - the main one is to make their teeth appear straighter, whiter, longer, prettier. Veneers also protect teeth that have been chipped, broken, or had root canals done on them.

In brief: Personal preference

Veneers are done for cosmetic reasons, mainly.
If a tooth a too big a filling or cavity on the front surface, a veneer is indicated. Most ate done to male the front teeth look better. They are done to correct spaces, chips/cracks, bad stains, rotations or to simply improve the overall appearance.
