What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, lightweight, yet highly durable shells of porcelain that cover existing teeth. They are generally considered a superior solution to esthetic crowns, as they require very little healthy tooth structure to be removed. Veneers can cover a vast array of cosmetic problems, such as chips, discoloration, or even minor misalignment.

Stain resistant and strong, dental veneers can easily last for more than a decade with proper care. Your dentist will carefully match them to your existing teeth to avoid an overly white “game show host” effect.

Veneers cannot be placed on diseased teeth, so any existing dental health issues must be treated beforehand. In addition, your dentist might suggest other cosmetic solutions, such as Invisalign or tooth whitening, in tandem with the veneers to create the best, most natural-looking smile for you.
