Dental veneers are the most effective way to quickly and permanently change your smile. They give you a beautiful new set of white teeth, immediately after the procedure. Veneers are permanent and last for up to 20 years with proper care. Veneers are no longer exclusively for celebrities seeking the perfect on-screen smile. Now anyone wanting to improve the appearance of their smile has this option.
You can choose to have a full mouth of dental veneers, or simply have them applied to an individual tooth. It depends on what you are looking for. To have veneers, you must have your original teeth in place.
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface. It sits directly on the front of your tooth. You cannot use veneers to replace missing or lost teeth.
However, if you are missing teeth, but you are also unhappy with the appearance of your existing teeth, you can combine veneers with dental implants to re-create a beautiful smile. Our cosmetic dentistry procedures are often combined with restorative ones, for a full mouth makeover.
