Veneers are small covers or shells which closely resemble a real tooth. They are think and flat and molded to fit onto the front of the tooth. Veneers are used generally for cosmetic purposes to conceal imperfection in the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of the tooth.
Veneers may be used to restore teeth that are stained or fractured to create a flawless “Hollywood” smile. Veneers can also be used to make the teeth appear straighter and to strengthen worn or weakened teeth. Veneers are durable and with proper oral hygiene can last for decades. Veneers should be regarded as normal teeth and cared for accordingly to ensure longevity of the veneer. Please ask your dental professional for a consultation if you think that you may be able to benefit from veneers.
