Some teeth have intrinsic stains that cannot be whitened with bleaching gel, and some teeth are irregularly shaped or have mild crowding. All of these conditions can be corrected with dental veneers. Dental veneers are professionally fabricated pieces of porcelain that are cemented onto the fronts of teeth to give the appearance of perfectly shaped and perfectly whitened teeth. In some cases, veneers can achieve the same results as braces, but in just two weeks time. Veneers also have the advantage of being more conservative than crowns, but not everybody is a good candidate for veneers. Ask Dr. Abril if veneers are the best way to enhance your smile.
