Veneers are used to make changes in the appearance of one's teeth by essentially putting a new facing on select teeth. Teeth that are misaligned, poorly shaped, spaced or discolored can be given an ideal appearance through the use of veneers.
Depending on the situation, anywhere from 0-1mm of enamel is removed from the front of the tooth to make room for the veneers, impressions are taken, and then lab-made porcelain veneers are bonded in to place for a beautiful smile. Composite veneers can also be placed immediately chairside in many situations. A careful analysis of form and function is used to determine the best choice of materials.
