Our dentists are happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for by providing the answers to these commonly asked questions about dental veneers:

Q: What are dental veneers?
A: Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are porcelain and made in a dental lab. They are custom made for your smile and they are designed to cover the front surfaces of unattractive teeth.

Q: How can dental veneers help me?
A: They can enhance and help teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven and irregularly shaped. They can also close gaps between teeth. In other words, they can improve the appearance of teeth that take the beauty away from the smile.

Q: What are the treatment steps involved?
A: The treatment will begin with our dentists numbing the mouth to help you feel comfortable. Then, they will trim the enamel of the tooth being treated. This will make room for the veneer. Next, they will make impressions of the smile and will send those impressions to dental lab technicians who will craft your veneer. When the veneer is ready and sent to our office, our dentists will cement it over the trimmed tooth.
