Veneers are cosmetic dentistry products that can give new life to your smile. Created in Hollywood to give actors perfect onscreen smiles, veneers are thin layers that fit over the outside of your existing teeth. They can be used to solve a myriad of cosmetic problems, such as discolored, broken and chipped teeth and large gaps between teeth. They can also be used to change the shape of a particular tooth to make it look more uniform. Veneers are easy to care for, affordable and can be attached in much less time and with fewer appointments than it takes to prepare crowns or implants.
Veneers are made in one of two ways. Composite veneers can be built up directly in the mouth, right in the office. Veneers made of dental porcelain are created in a dental lab and then adhered to the teeth by the dentist.
