Veneers - "Hollywood Teeth"

Veneers - "Hollywood Teeth"

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the esthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Veneers are indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement. Veneers are an important tool for the cosmetic dentist.

A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored, or multiple teeth to create a "Hollywood" type of makeover. Many people have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics. Some people have worn away the edges of their teeth resulting in a prematurely aged appearance, while others may have malpositioned teeth that appear crooked.

Multiple veneers can close these spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, provide a uniform color, shape, and symmetry, and make the teeth appear straight.
