Veneers have a natural appearance and are essentially thin porcelain shells that have been custom designed to fit your teeth. Veneers are placed over your anterior teeth and only cover the front surfaces. They are used to reshape your teeth and give you a beautiful, esthetic smile. Upon completion, your new veneers will look remarkably similar to natural teeth. Veneers are typically resistant to stains, but you may still need to avoid certain beverages, such as coffee and red wine, in order to preserve your new smile.
