What are veneers: Veneers are customized and individually sculpted for each patient. It is almost impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. As opposed to natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke as they are comprised of high-tech materials. With veneers unlike crowns, your natural teeth remain largely unbroken and intact with only a minimal amount being altered to accommodate the veneer. For those teeth that resist whitening, veneers can be leveraged to make even the darkest teeth appear bright white.
