Dental veneers, also known as porcelain laminate veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of the teeth and enhance the smile. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length, and are highly esthetic.
With dentist-supervised at-home bleaching products, an impression of your teeth is taken and a custom fit mouthpiece tray is fabricated to exactly fit over the teeth. This customization allows for maximum contact between the whitening gel, which is carried in the mouthpiece tray, and onto the teeth. A custom-made tray also minimizes the gel’s contact with gum tissue and is comfortable to wear.
