Dental veneers are customized shells made of porcelain or a composite resin that fit over your teeth to improve their appearance.

Veneers are especially helpful in improving your smile if you have teeth that are chipped, stained or misshapen. The purpose of veneers is generally cosmetic, but you may have them fitted as part of an overall dental makeover that includes treatment for gum disease.

Porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant and natural-looking than composite veneers. But composite veneers are thinner, so less tooth surface needs to be removed before they are applied. We can help you determine which veneer best meets your needs.
