Veneers can bridge the gap between a filling and a crown. They are thin shells made in a laboratory intended to cover the front side of teeth to hide stains, chips, decay, spaces or irregularities. Our dental technician uses our 3D Itero Digital scanned image to make a custom shell out of special materials just for you. Then the veneers are bonded into place.
Just like natural teeth, care needs to be taken to avoid foods and drinks that could stain your veneers. Veneers can also chip or crack on hard foods just like natural teeth, so being mindful of what you consume will extend the beauty and longevity of these restorations.
Veneers can be an alternative to full coverage crowns in certain cases if there is enough healthy, solid tooth structure. Under some circumstances, porcelain veneers allow us to shape a tooth more favorably and provide a more stable color than bonding.
