Cosmetic Dentistry for a Brighter Smile – Dental Veneers

A dental veneer is a thin overlay of material on a tooth to repair damage or improve the appearance of the tooth. There are two types of veneers that Dr. Molinar may use to address issues with your teeth. Either a composite veneer can be used to fabricate the veneer, or dental porcelain may be used. The composite veneer can be directly applied to your teeth to build up a coating, while dental porcelain will be externally fabricated in the lab and then bonded to your tooth.

Veneers are a great solution for re-shaping your smile as they can be made to match the color of surrounding teeth, and can correct for many different problems such as un-even wear, cracked or chipped teeth, or to close spaces and lengthen teeth where needed.
