Often used as an alternative to crowns, veneers are very thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain or plastic that are glued over the front of your teeth with little or no anesthesia needed. They are the cure for teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, have small holes or pits, misshapen or crooked, or for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces. Unlike crowns, veneers won't require Dr. Marilyn to remove much of the tooth itself in most cases. Veneers are strong and very durable, stain resistant and are a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile.
