What are veneers used to treat?

Smiling is very important because it can help our bodies release endorphins that provide numerous health benefits, including reduced blood pressure, reduced stress, and a strengthened immune system. According to American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) research, 99.7 % of adults think a smile is an essential social asset. But so much more than just a social asset, studies have found that smiling can improve your mood, increase happiness, makes you look younger, improve overall health, and boost life expectancy. Nothing you wear is more important than your smile!

Dental veneers can be a significant investment in your smile and an excellent solution to help you to achieve the look you desire. They are durable, versatile, natural-looking, and easy to maintain. Fragile, translucent, tooth-colored, custom-made porcelain shells conceal your dental imperfections and dramatically transform your smile's esthetics. Veneers can fix multiple dental cosmetic issues at once and increase confidence in your smile. If your teeth are short, uneven, gapped, misaligned, irregularly shaped, stained, discolored, chipped, superficially cracked, or even worn down, this treatment can quickly solve your problems. The purpose of veneers is to change the shape, color, size, and appearance of natural teeth. You may only get one dental veneer in the case of a chipped or broken tooth, but usually, patients choose between six to eight veneers to create an even and symmetrical smile.


Dental veneers are one of the most common cosmetics; restorative dentistry treatments are used to correct many dental concerns. This procedure has a high aesthetic outcome and long-term predictability because of its effectiveness and ease of use. Veneers are often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials. Porcelain veneers show excellent aesthetic results and predictable longevity, while composite veneers can be considered a good conservative option but have less durability. With proper oral hygiene, porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years before they require replacement or repair. The most significant benefit of using dental veneers is improving the appearance of your teeth and giving you a brighter and more even smile.


Patients with ample tooth enamel and minor alignments are excellent candidates for dental veneers. Teeth must be healthy and free of decay and active gum disease. During the procedure, the dentist must eliminate a small portion of enamel to create space for veneers.
