A veneer is a wafer-thin layer custom-made of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of the teeth and improve their appearance while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment. In other words, they improve your smile, but they don't necessarily strengthen or repair your teeth. While dental crowns can also improve the appearance of teeth, their primary purpose is to restore teeth that have been severely damaged by decay or trauma.
Veneers come in numerous shapes and sizes and are customized to your unique needs, so we can hide imperfections in a single tooth or completely transform your entire smile. This is also the reason why we primarily consider veneers as a cosmetic treatment. Talk to your dentist about your specific cosmetic goals and find out if dental veneers are a good option for you.
