What are veneers?

If you are interested in a complete smile makeover, veneers might be the right choice for you. Dental veneers are extremely thin shells, typically made of resin or porcelain, that are attached to the front of the tooth structure. By covering the front of the teeth, dental veneers can be used to correct cosmetic smile flaws and enhance your appearance. We use dental veneers made from quality porcelain and resin at Essential Dental PC to ensure that your new smile looks beautifully natural. Dr. Carlton and Dr. Dunlap will match the shade of the porcelain or resin to your natural tooth color for a consistent look, or we can use a lighter shade if you would like a brighter, whiter smile.
