Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored custom-made shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They’re often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials. These shells are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
The benefit to veneers is improving the appearance of your teeth, giving you a brighter and more even smile. Dental veneers can be used to treat a number of different cosmetic concerns, including
- discoloration or staining that can’t be fixed with whitening
- chipped or broken teeth
- gaps in the teeth
- smaller-than-average teeth
- pointed or unusually shaped teeth
