A veneer is an extremely natural looking dental restoration that covers the outside or visible surface of teeth. A veneer can change shape and color of a tooth as well as hide defects. It is bonded into place and cannot be taken off.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the alternatives to Veneers?
Alternatives to placing a veneer are to either leave the tooth as is or to place a composite restoration. Composite restorations remove decay but are limited because they will stain more and do not change the size and color of teeth as well as veneers.
How can an existing bite affect a Veneer?
Bite problems may lead to the veneer chipping or breaking.
Are there any post-treatment limitations once I have a Veneer?
- Porcelain on a veneer may have a good color match with adjacent natural teeth when the veneer is placed but less of a match as your natural teeth age.
- A veneer may chip or break if used for abnormal activities (e.g., biting fishing line, sewing thread, biting fingernails, opening bottles
