A veneer improves the appearance of a tooth by covering the visible front surface with a custom-made, tooth-colored porcelain overlay.
A veneer is often prescribed for a tooth that is:
- Discolored or stained
- Worn down, chipped or broken
- Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
It may also be prescribed to "fill the gap" between two otherwise healthy teeth.
With proper care and good oral hygiene, a veneer has a lifespan of 5-15 years.

They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective teeth straightening procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.
MTM® Clear•Aligner is a removable clear tray system appliance designed to move the teeth without damaging the enamel or requiring years of treatment. Most treatment lasts about 6 months.
