Dental veneers are thin shells of medical-grade (ceramic or composite) that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation.
Veneers originated nearly one hundred years ago during the early days of the film industry.

After evaluating health history, current dental health, and the condition of a patient’s enamel, a dentist can make an informed decision regarding a patient’s suitability for this treatment. He or she can also recommend alternative treatments for non-qualifying patients.
Your dentist removes as little tooth enamel as possible for veneers. It is possible for veneers to come loose over time. In that case, new ones might be needed.
