Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells specially prepared to make your teeth look natural. They can be used to change the color and shape of your teeth to improve their appearance. Porcelain is a durable and stain resistant material.
How it is done To provide room and help strenghten the veneers a small amount of enamel is usually removed from the front of the teeth. An impression is then made of your teeth from which the custom veneers are made to precisely fit your teeth. On the second visit the veneers are bonded to your teeth.
What to expect Veneers require the same level of oral hygiene that your own teeth require. Veneers can chip if not cared for properly. Habits such as fingernail biting, chewing on very hard objects, and using your teeth as tools should be avoided.
A natural effect Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel. When you feel and look good, you project a confident self-image. So, make the most of your smile.
