Veneers are fine hand-crafted porcelain facings strongly bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. Veneers allow us to correct irregularly shaped teeth quite quickly, hence their nickname, “instant orthodontics.” Lumineers is a type of veneer.
Veneers can be used to correct a whole host of dental problems, from discoloration to poor alignment. Because the underlying tooth is subtly visible through the veneer, this form of treatment looks entirely natural and requires only minimal reduction of healthy tooth structure. Tooth whitening prior to installation of veneers can result in a bright white smile.
