Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-like material that are used to cover the front of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite.
Veneers can be used to fix a variety of imperfections including:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned, uneven, misshapen or gapped teeth
To prepare a tooth for a veneer, typically your dentist will have to remove a small amount of enamel to allow space for veneer. We will then create an impression of your tooth which will be sent to the laboratory for your veneer to be created. When it is complete, the veneer will be bonded to your tooth.
Veneers provide a natural appearance, are stain-resistant and offer a conservative approach to restoration. If you would like to learn more about how they can improve your smile, call us today at (509) 904-0994.
