What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. In most cases, veneers are often irreversible because the fronts of the teeth are shaped to allow room in your mouth for the veneers.

Am I a good candidate?
If you are interested in having veneers placed, Dr. David Shouhed will inspect your teeth and determine if veneers are the best way to reach your smile goals.

How are veneers placed?
A small amount of enamel is removed from the front surfaces of the teeth being treated. Impressions of the teeth are then made so that your veneers can be custom made. Once your veneers are ready, the fit will be checked, any necessary adjustments will be made, and the veneers will be bonded to the front of the teeth.

How do I care for my veneers?
It may come as a surprise that veneers do not require special care. Simply brush and floss them as you would your natural teeth and visit Smile Perfector Dental Group at least twice a year for routine dental appointments. You may want to limit staining foods and beverages, like coffee. Also, keep in mind that your veneers will need to be replaced eventually by our dentist.
