Dental veneers are one of the best options available for improving your smile. A full set of veneers can provide a dramatic smile makeover, but even one or two veneers to correct cosmetic imperfections can make a noticeable difference in your appearance.
Because veneers cover over your natural teeth, they can be used to correct a range of aesthetic issues, including:
- Gaps between two teeth
- Uneven tooth lengths
- Minor tooth misalignments
- Discoloration or stains that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Size and shape
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that wrap around the sides and biting edge of a tooth for a natural appearance. Veneers are fitted precisely into the natural contours of each tooth by removing a small layer of enamel. The veneers are then bonded to the tooth surface and cured with a specialized UV light.

Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
It’s a common misconception that veneers even ruin your teeth because of the enamel removed to attach them, but this isn’t true. Veneers only require the removal of the outermost layer of enamel, which has no impact on the overall health of the tooth.
Do you brush veneers?
Even if you have veneers, you need to brush and floss your teeth. Although the veneers themselves can’t get cavities, the dental structure beneath them is still vulnerable to decay, and plaque accumulation can lead to tartar and gum disease.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
If you have healthy teeth and gums but want to correct cosmetic imperfections that make you self-conscious about your smile, you are likely a good candidate for veneers.
Do your teeth have to be straight for veneers?
No, veneers do not require perfectly straight teeth. In fact, many patients choose veneers over braces or aligner therapy to correct minor misalignments.
Is getting veneers painful?
We numb your teeth before removing any tooth enamel, so you won’t experience any pain or sensitivity while getting veneers.
