What Are Dental Veneers?

Have you ever wanted to change the appearance of your teeth? Maybe the color isn't quite what you want, or the length of a tooth is a little too short. Perhaps you'd like to fix an unsightly chipped tooth from an accident or want to fill in a gap? In any of these cases, getting dental veneers might be the perfect solution to brighten your smile and improve your confidence.

The veneer is a thin layer of restorative material that looks like a healthy and white tooth. Typically they are used to help improve the visual look of a tooth or cover the damaged surface.

In order to have your dental veneer adhere to the existing tooth, your cosmetic dentist removes a small portion of the enamel on the facial surface of your tooth, just enough to fit the veneer into place. The veneer is placed with a bonding technique which takes only 20 minutes.

Veneers, which were widely utilized to modify an actor's teeth in the 1930s, have since evolved into two main varieties: porcelain and composite- with porcelain veneers being generally agreed upon as

the more durable of the two types. The Porcelain veneers are manufactured by a laboratory while the composite veneers are completed in one visit chair side.
