Veneers are thin, custom-made shells used to correct both color and shape problems, and make for the ultimate smile makeover. Veneers (porcelain or plastic) are placed over the front teeth to hide any visible defects, leaving behind a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Typically completed quickly in one or two visits, veneers provide a strong, durable and stain-resistant solution for people seeking to enhance their smile. The most common reasons why patients opt for this procedure include:

  • Chipped, cracked or broken teeth
  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too big
  • Teeth with uneven surfaces

    What to expect During the first visit, the doctor will begin by prepping the teeth by lightly buffing to allow for the added thickness of the veneer. Then, a mold is taken of the teeth, and sent to a professional lab for fabrication. The patient will be given temporary veneers before receiving the customized veneers on their second visit. During the next appointment, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Finally, bonding cement will be placed between the teeth and veneer, and hardened by a visible light beam. Patient will be given aftercare instructions that will include proper brushing, flossing and frequent dental visits.
