Dental veneers are one effective solution in cosmetic dentistry to help you restore the appearance of your teeth.

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are made of tooth-colored materials. They are designed to cover the front side of your teeth in order to restore the appearance of chipped, cracked or stained teeth.

Veneers are typically an irreversible process, because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel in order to accommodate the veneer shell.

Be mindful that coffee, tea and red wine may stain or discolor dental veneers.

Sometimes dental veneers are called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates. Porcelain veneers tend to resist stains better, and they also mimic the light-reflecting nature of natural teeth, because they’re translucent.

And dental veneers are also remarkable for their capacity to be designed to match any shade of white with precision! In other words, they look exactly like the rest of your teeth.
