Are Veneers Right for You?

Are Veneers Right for You?

Veneers can change the shape, size, color, or length of your teeth. You may be a good candidate for veneers if you have:

  • An uneven gum line, making your teeth look too long or too short
  • Teeth that are crowded, crooked, or gapped
  • Small chips in your front teeth
  • Teeth that are stained or discolored beyond the help of whitening

Patients who are not good candidates for braces and who wish for a straighter smile also often find this treatment to deliver the desired result.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

During a consultation, we will work closely with you to determine if this treatment option is the right choice for you.Veneers can be an excellent option for some patients. Please contact us to discuss your options and customize treatment that suits your goals to improve your smile.

What veneers help:


  • Misshapen, misaligned, and uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth that teeth whitening doesn’t correct
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gapped teeth


What are veneers made of:


Veneers are either a composite resin or porcelain. Our dentists will assess the desired changes you wish to make with your teeth to determine the best type of treatment for you.

Porcelain Veneers


  • Don’t stain as easily
  • Strong
  • Natural-looking surface
  • Less enamel loss than with bonding or crowns


Composite Resin Veneers


  • Made from a filling material that is bonded to your tooth
  • Less enamel loss than with crowns
  • Costs less than porcelain treatments
  • While they're not as durable as porcelain, composite resin can be more easily repaired
