Veneers are a way for you to take back your smile and fix discolored, chipped or decaying teeth. A veneer is a porcelain, tooth-colored shell that is placed as a cover over the front of an individual tooth to restore its bright and healthy appearance. While it’s a common solution to these issues, a consultation is still necessary to determine if veneers are right for you. The process of receiving a veneer involves removing a layer of enamel from your tooth, which means it’s irreversible. Veneers can still stain or chip, so your dentist may recommend you stay away from certain foods and drinks to keep them looking fresh.
