Veneers are thin, custom-made shells attached to the surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are fabricated to match your desired color, shape, and size.
Dental veneers can be made from different materials. Your dentist will guide you and help you determine the right specifications for your situation.
At Westwood Dental, we offer veneer services to help you transform your smile the way you want. Connect with us to book your consultation with our dentist.

Dental veneers are cosmetic dental restorations that can help address the following:
Getting veneers usually requires two dental visits, assuming you have completed your initial consultation and exams. If veneers are the right option for your case, the first visit will be about preparing and taking impressions of your teeth.
Veneers require space, so a small portion of the enamel will be removed at the front and on the sides of the teeth. Then, your dentist takes an impression of the prepared teeth. You and your dentist also determine the best shade for the shell to achieve a natural look.
Afterward, the impression is sent to the dental lab, where the custom veneers are made. This can take several days. To protect your teeth while waiting, you wear temporary veneers.
On your second visit, the temporary veneers are removed and the new veneers are attached. Your dentist checks their fit and shape and makes needed adjustments before they're permanently bonded to the teeth.
Your dentist may also ask you to return after a couple of weeks to check the condition of your veneers.
