A veneer is an ultra-thin, durable, tooth shaped porcelain shell that covers the front side of a tooth. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are permanently stained, poorly shaped, chipped, worn, or poorly spaced. They are custom made in a dental laboratory then bonded onto the front of teeth to create a durable, beautiful and attractive smile.
Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend veneers for the following reasons:
- Create a beautiful, natural looking smile.
- Fix crooked teeth.
- Reshape teeth.
- Correct uneven or unwanted spaces.
- Repair chipped or worn teeth.
