“Quality veneers are such that you’ll never notice them. People just think you have a great smile! I promise you: more people have veneers than you probably think.”
— Dr. Christopher Campus
What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin (hence the name) pieces of porcelain, precisely shaped to fit over your existing teeth and serve as a new “surface,” providing a better aesthetic. Veneers are made to match the color and shade of your natural teeth, and are sized to fit the proportions of your face and mouth.
Why would I want veneers?
Most people get veneers because they are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, and don’t want to go through extensive orthodontic treatment or other restorative work. With veneers, you can basically get a perfect smile with no downtime. Veneers solve a variety of aesthetic dental issues, such as staining, crooked or chipped teeth, and large gaps between teeth.
What is the process for getting veneers?
There are several stages. First, we take scans of your existing teeth to accurately capture their size and color. Then, we design the veneers, and have them fabricated. During this stage, we talk about size, shade, etc. to make sure you are completely happy with how your veneers will look. Finally, we place the veneers over your existing teeth, securely attaching them.
