Q: What are dental veneers?
A: Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that look just like natural teeth. They are cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth and they disguise the imperfections of the smile.

Q: What can dental veneers do for me?
A: Dental veneers can help discolored teeth, worn-down teeth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, misaligned teeth, uneven teeth, teeth with gaps between them, irregularly shaped teeth and more. In other words, they can enhance the appearance of your smile.

Q: What are the steps involved in treatment?
A: Your dentist will numb the mouth and will trim the enamel of the teeth being treated. This will make room for the veneers. Then, he will send impressions to dental lab technicians who will custom make your veneers. When they are ready, your dentist will cement them to the front surfaces of your teeth.
