The veneer is the outer surface of your teeth, either natural or artificial. As you grow older, or if you've had an accident that affected your teeth, they can become discolored or damaged. This is a condition that is a bit beyond restoring the brightness to your teeth through the whitening process. Veneers are "outer skins" for your teeth that are created in a dental laboratory and then fitted to each tooth in the dentist's office. After the procedure (painless), you have a completely restored smile with all the stains and damage covered by a natural-looking set of veneers - your choice of shading!
