New techniques in cosmetic dentistry are making it very convenient and attractive to enhance your smile. Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. In approximately two weeks and just two dental appointments you can have beautiful custom-made porcelain veneers. Veneers have become the treatment of choice if you have teeth that are stained, crooked or malformed due to cracks, chips, spaces or staining. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.
