What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are a thin covering that goes over the outer surfaces of your teeth to improve your smile. These thin shells are made from porcelain that will blend in naturally with your surrounding teeth while correcting cosmetic issues on the surface.
There are many reasons you might want veneers, such as:
- Fixing shape or size issues with your teeth
- Addressing chips along the outer surfaces
- Whitening teeth
- Correcting gaps
We want the veneers to work as well as possible, so we will address any underlying oral health issues before applying them. For example, we will fill cavities or reverse gum disease before designing veneers for your smile.
To keep you as comfortable as possible, we will customize your oral care plan to meet your needs.

We view you as an extension of our team, so we will work with you to help you decide if dental veneers are right for you.
How Are Dental Veneers Applied?
Usually, dental veneers are applied in a two-stage process. At the first appointment, we’ll remove a thin layer of the enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates space for the porcelain shell to cover your outer tooth surface.
We will then take digital dental impressions to create custom veneers that perfectly fit your teeth. While your permanent veneers are created at the at the lab, Dr. Thompson will apply temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the interim.
After your permanent veneers are ready, you will return for your second visit to have them applied to your teeth, creating the perfect smile.
