Some of us have teeth that are not as white or as close to perfection as we would like them to be. Perhaps a tooth has been chipped or fractured. In some cases, teeth may have become discolored from age, smoking, or the beverages we drink.

Veneers are a terrific, long-lasting solution for making your smile bright and beautiful.

Veneers are very thin, resin shells made from tooth-colored porcelain or composite resin that cover your natural teeth. As strong and resilient as tooth enamel, veneers can protect the teeth for many years, while improving the shape and look of any broken, chipped, or stained teeth.
Veneers are individually custom-made for each patient to tightly fit the contours of his or her teeth. Once properly shaped, veneers are bonded to the dental enamel during one, perhaps two, office visits.
