Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can be placed on top of a tooth. Like crowns, we use CAD/CAM technology to fabricate the basic shape of the veneers. We then apply an artistic touch to the veneers to bring them to life.
This technology has improved leaps and bounds over the last few years. We now can take a simple impression of your teeth and have our cosmetic dental lab create veneers as thin as your fingernail and directly bond them to your teeth. No drilling and in some cases no shots either.
Discolored or misshapen teeth can be covered to present a look of straight healthy teeth. Veneers are a covering composed of either resin or porcelain that mask the imperfections of your natural teeth and can even correct minor malpositioning of the teeth without braces.
This patient was not happy with many things. One of her front teeth was discolored, and she did not like the spaces or the length of her teeth.
This is the result of her treatment after the placement of eight porcelain veneers. The color is very natural, the spaces have been closed, and the teeth have been lengthened.
