Veneers are a thin piece of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth. Veneers can be used to cover discolored teeth (and change the color!), to fix chips on your teeth, to lengthen your teeth, and to hide spaces between your teeth. If you are looking to fix any of these problems and have teeth that don’t have large fillings, you might be a good candidate for dental veneers!
The first step in the veneer process involves evaluating what you have and what you want to have. Sometimes you can have a dental lab do a mock up in wax of how your final result is likely to look. (This is more for shape and contour than actual color since the color of the model material can affect how the color looks.)
Some teeth can be minimally prepared to receive a veneer and others need more structure removed.
Porcelain is the best material for veneers because it is strong, resists stains and other discolorations, is kind to your gums, and can be made to fit your tooth by the dental lab.
