Q: What are dental veneers?
A: Dental veneers are very thin shells that are designed to fit over the front surface of an unattractive tooth. They are made of porcelain and are crafted in a dental lab. They provide natural-looking results.

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: First, your dentist will numb the tooth and surrounding area. Then, they will trim the tooth enamel of the treated tooth to make room for the veneer. Next, they will make impressions of the tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab where technicians will craft your veneer. When the veneer is ready, it will be sent to our office and then cemented to the front surface of your tooth.
