Veneers are thin covers that attach to the front of your teeth. They are one of several cosmetic dentistry procedures that your local Aspen Dental offers.
You may choose dental veneers to cover:
Stained teeth that can’t be whitened by bleaching
Chipped or worn teeth
Crooked or misshapen teeth
Uneven spaces or gaps between the upper front teeth
Cover on the front of the tooth
Cover the whole tooth

It all starts with healthy teeth and gums. As your care team, we will treat any disease or decay before they begin placing your veneers.
Next, we’ll remove some of your tooth enamel to prepare it for the veneer.
For porcelain veneers, we’ll take an impression of your teeth. You’ll likely wear temporary veneers while the lab crafts your custom veneers. When they’re ready, we’ll fit, adjust and bond them to your teeth.
For composite resin veneers, we’ll sculpt the material to your teetth. A special light helps it harden and bond to the surfaces. Then we’ll polish your veneers for a natural finish.
