Veneers can be used to change the size, shape, or color of a damaged tooth, making them an ideal restoration for cosmetic problems such as:

  • Mild to moderate chips and cracks
  • Close mild to moderate gaps and spacing (bite and alignment problems may require orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign)
  • Stains and discolorations
  • Cosmetic improvements to uneven or unattractive teeth

Who Should Get Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most minimally invasive treatments available, and usually only require two appointments to complete. They are a good option for moderate cosmetic improvements to the surface of the teeth. Veneers are made of a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded onto the surface of the tooth and molded to create the designed length or shape of the tooth.

There are some instances where veneers may not be the right option, such as in cases of large fractures or cracks where a crown might be a better fit, or for significant spacing issues caused by malocclusions. After a comprehensive exam, the dentist can determine whether veneers are the ideal solution for you.
