What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom created to fit over the front of your teeth. By covering the front surface of your teeth, the veneers are used to correct cosmetic dental flaws and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Based on your personal dental needs, we can use a single veneer to correct one flawed tooth, or we can use a series of dental veneers to completely transform your smile. Veneers are made of porcelain, which is a durable, tooth-colored material. We can match the shade of porcelain to your natural tooth color to blend in with the rest of your smile, or we can use a lighter shade to brighten your smile.

Do I need veneers?

Dental veneers may be a good choice for your smile if you are looking for a solution that gives you a beautiful smile you love to share. Dr. Douglas Doran may suggest this treatment if your smile is flawed by imperfections such as:

  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Seriously stained, darkened, or discolored teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Unsightly spaces and gaps in between teeth
  • Teeth that are broken, chipped, or fractured
  • Very worn teeth
