What can dental veneers do for me? 
Veneers cover the surface of your teeth to provide a brand new appearance. The veneer itself, made from a super-thin layer of porcelain, mimics a natural tooth’s light-reflecting qualities and appearance almost exactly, providing a natural appearance which fits right in with your smile. Since each veneer is customized by a laboratory technician in a dental laboratory, the design also takes the color of your natural teeth into account, color-matching the veneer to match your smile.

What can I expect from the dental veneers procedure? 
The procedure for veneers will almost always consist of two separate dental appointments. The first appointment requires preparation of the teeth, where your dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel from your tooth’s surface. Your dentist then takes an impression of your mouth for the dental laboratory, which will help in the design process of your veneer. Your dentist may choose to place temporary restorations to protect your teeth between appointments. The second appointment will take place once your dentist has received your final restorations from the laboratory. At this visit, your dentist removes the temporary restorations and fits and places the veneers permanently into place.

Can veneers work in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures? 
Veneers work great when used with other cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental bridges, dental crowns and dental implants. However, due to their porcelain materials, you cannot change the color of veneers using teeth whitening procedures. For this reason, you should let consult with your dentist beforehand if you wish to use teeth whitening to enhance the appearance of your natural teeth so the laboratory can color match the veneer to the post-whitening shade of your teeth.
