Dental veneers are said to be a cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve the shape, color and position of teeth. Also called porcelain veneers, they are made of a thin porcelain layer fitted over the front facing surface of tooth. Once veneers are fitted, they usually last for many years, but like normal teeth, they can be chipped or broken.
Our dental surgeons use veneers to correct various oral concerns that include – chipped, crooked, gapped, uneven, discolored or protruding teeth.

The dental veneer method can usually be done in two visits within the time period of six weeks. These dental visits are inclusive and may require several hours of oral examination for tooth preparation.
The examination phase for the treatment is necessary as it helps to identify any oral health concerns that should be addressed before placing veneers. Your dentist will work together with you to choose the right color of your tooth from the shade chart.
With imaging technologies, you can get a preview of the expected results, and before and after images will enable you to see other successful cases. The treatment usually begins when the examination gets completed and the dentist prepares a customized plan for your need.
Dental veneers do not require any special care. Make sure you follow good oral hygiene by brushing twice and flossing daily for improved health condition.
Though porcelain veneers can resist stains, your dentist may suggest not taking stain-causing foods and drinks such as tea, coffee or red wine for the time-being.
Yes, there are other options to porcelain veneers and these include – dental crowns and bondings. Veneers may be the right choice for the ones who want to change the shape of their teeth that can be done with bonding but do not require a crown.
