Do your smile flaws make you embarrassed, or even ashamed of your smile? If you dream of a more attractive, radiant smile, Dr. Stephen Henry may recommend veneers in Foster City, California.

What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or ceramic that is placed on the front of a tooth to improve its appearance. Veneers look natural and are strong and resilient like natural tooth enamel. Your veneers will be designed and constructed with your smile in mind. When they are ready, they will be bonded to the front of your teeth.

When Are Veneers Used?
Our dentist may suggest veneers for your smile if you would like to correct:

– Gaps between your teeth
– Slightly crooked teeth
– Stained or discolored teeth
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Teeth that appear too short

How Do I Care for My Veneers?
Brush and floss your teeth with veneers in the same way that you do your natural teeth. In addition, visit our office often for your biyearly dental appointments. Do not chew pens, your nails, or ice, as this can damage your dental veneers. Caring for your veneers will help them last for as long as possible.
