What is a veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of ceramic or tooth colored composite filling material that covers the front of a tooth. It is like a contact lens for your eyes or acrylic nails for your fingers.
Depending on your individual dental condition, veneers can do some or all of the following:
- Improve the color, size, length, or shape of your teeth
- Help close small spaces between your teeth (also known as diastemas)
- Repair chipped, worn, or decayed teeth
Our goal is to give you the confidence to smile by making natural looking teeth that accentuate your personality and compliment your natural beauty. At the end of treatment, your smile should look as if it was naturally beautiful and never had any dental treatment.
Sometimes we can make veneers without any adjustments to your teeth, but most cases require some removal of tooth structure to give space for the ceramic or composite material. The amount of tooth structure removed depends entirely upon the condition of the existing teeth and the outcome you are trying to achieve.
