Have you heard about veneers but are unsure of what they do? Veneers are thin shells that are made to look like your front teeth. They are placed over your front teeth with the intent to hide minor blemishes and replace them with a nice, white smile.

If your front teeth are stained, uneven, crooked or chipped, veneers can be used to hide them from view. If your teeth are slightly crowded or have too large a gap separating them, then veneers can make them appear like they have just the right amount of space between them.

The veneers should also have the look of natural teeth, meaning that people may not know you even have veneers. With these issues covered, you can present other people with a camera-ready smile.

Aside from their cosmetic value, veneers can also help you if some enamel has worn off. Enamel helps guard the inner layers of your teeth from infection. If the enamel gets worn away, then your teeth are more at risk. Veneers can step into the role of the missing enamel by creating a barrier between the tooth and anything that may not have its best interests in mind.
