Veneers – Port City Family Dentistry

As one of the various protective and aesthetic measures in dentistry, veneers are a popular procedure. A veneer is a thin mold that is placed over the tooth to achieve a different appearance, though not always to make the tooth appear whiter. Veneers are often used in movies to change an actor’s tooth color, and this was actually their original purpose. Veneers can also act as a simple second layer between the tooth and plaque. Most veneers are made from a mold in a lab, but some are created directly on the tooth.
