What are veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to one or more of your teeth. This unique layer covers up imperfections and problems with your teeth. The veneers are carefully made to custom-fit your teeth and match the color of your other teeth. Once they are affixed to your teeth, no one will notice the veneers at all. 

What problems can veneers fix?

Veneers may help if you have:

In addition to improving the way your teeth look, veneers also have several other benefits.

Non-cosmetic reasons to consider veneers

Although many people consider veneers to get a more attractive smile, there are many non-cosmetic reasons that veneers may help you.


Most people don’t think about it, but your teeth have a significant effect on how you speak. Crooked teeth, gaps in your teeth, and other teeth issues affect your speech. Veneers can be used to improve the form of your teeth to improve your speaking ability.


Very crooked teeth can make it hard to process food because your top teeth may not correctly meet your bottom teeth, making chewing difficult. Veneer treatment can improve crooked teeth, enhancing your ability to chew food correctly. 

Repairing tiny cracks

Although the outer layer of your teeth is made of solid enamel, it can develop cracks. Sometimes, these cracks are so small you can't see them at all, but they can affect your tooth's structure and strength. Veneers provide an extra layer of stability, reinforcing any small cracks in your tooth and preventing them from getting more significant.

Fixing gaps

Significant gaps between your teeth are often seen as merely a cosmetic problem, but they also make it challenging to keep your teeth clean. Large spaces between your teeth leave room for bacteria, plaque and tartar to build up between your teeth, increasing your chances for developing cavities and gum disease. Veneers can fix gaps, improving your oral health. 

Veneers are a dental treatment that improves the appearance of your teeth, covering up discolorations, chips, cracks, and gaps. However, veneers also improve your oral and overall health in many other significant ways.
