Veneers are thin, custom made shells made from porcelain or resin composite to cover the front surface of your teeth. These change the color, shape, size or length of your teeth. Veneers are useful to improve the appearance of your teeth when you have spaces between them or your teeth have become chipped or worn, are permanently stained, are poorly shaped or are slightly crooked.
For this procedure first an impression of your tooth is taken, then the tooth is polished and finally the veneer is cemented in place. A beam of light helps harden the cement, which secures the veneer to your tooth. Veneers last longer, provide a superior appearance and most importantly are much less expensive than other cosmetic dental procedures.
