Veneers are thin porcelain shells that permanently bond to the front of your teeth. They have translucent coloring, making them look just like your natural tooth enamel. The procedure gives you a seamless smile and a new level of confidence.

Before your veneers procedure, your provider at Forrest Dental consults with you about your cosmetic goals. In addition, you have a comprehensive oral exam to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.
If you’re a candidate for veneers, the two of you develop a customized treatment plan that includes selecting the size, shape, and color of your veneers that best compliment your smile. Your choices can also affect the appearance of your facial features, skin tone, gums, and lips.
To begin your procedure, your dentist shaves a thin layer of enamel from your teeth and lightly buffs and reshapes your natural teeth to make room for your veneers. Most people can tolerate this part, but if requested, the Forrest Dental team can provide a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable.
