What are veneers?
For a full explantation, watch this VIDEO.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. Veneers are one of the best cosmetic dentistry procedures avaible because of how they look and fit into a patient's mouth. You can get this cosmetic procedure done in our Memphis dental offices.
Veneers are made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist. Placing veneers is usually an irreversible process, because it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the shell.
Dr. Edwards and his Memphis dental staff may recommend that you avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine. Sometimes a veneer might chip or fracture. But for many people the results are more than worth it!
