Dental veneers are thin layers of tooth-colored porcelain custom made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can protect and or improve the appearance of your teeth. We bond, or permanently attach them to your teeth and can change the size, shape, and/or color of your teeth.
We may recommend dental veneers to improve the look of teeth that have:
- Permanent stains beyond what teeth whitening will improve
- Considerable wear
- Chipping or breakage
- Irregular shape
- Small gaps between them
During your consultation, we will get a good understanding what you want to accomplish with dental veneers and make sure they are the best option for your goals. Then, we will prepare your tooth or teeth by removing about half a millimeter of enamel from the surface of the tooth, the same thickness as the veneer. We will use our E4D Dentist system to make computer models of your tooth and then make the veneer right in our office while you wait. Finally, when the veneer is complete, the Dr. Ciaran Murphy will match the color of the veneer to your teeth and bond the veneer to the surface of the tooth.
