If you are embarrassed about the look of your teeth but cannot afford implants, veneers can give you a beautiful smile in the interim. Veneers are temporary coverings that can hide all your cosmetic problems, including stained, chipped or worn-down teeth, as well as gaps in your teeth or a noticeable misalignment. The process is not reversible, however. It is a good idea to consult an experienced dentist, such as Dr. Matthew D. Wolfe of Signature Dentistry of Rochester, to determine if they are right for you.
What are Veneers?
Usually made of porcelain, veneers are thin “shells” that are placed over the front of your teeth and bonded into place. They are tailored to fit each tooth and do not impede teeth functions such as chewing and biting. Here is a comparison of the pros and cons of veneers.

Consult a Professional
Due to the permanence of enamel removal, installing veneers is considered a permanent treatment. It is crucial that you discuss your options with an experienced comprehensive dentist such as Dr. Wolfe, who can advise you on this procedure and help you make the choice that fits you and your specific needs.
