Veneers are a perfect option for correcting the teeth’s imperfections for patients with gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of the teeth. Veneers are made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) so they look like your natural teeth.
If you and your dentist decide veneers are right for you, your doctor will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneers, your doctor may need to conservatively prepare your tooth to achieve the desired look.

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that is connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed.
Occlusal disease is caused by a misalignment of the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches, also called malocclusion. If left untreated, occlusal disease can damage your teeth, the supporting bones and gums around your teeth, temporomandibular joints, and the jaw muscles you use for chewing.
Many people dismiss excessive or abnormally accelerated tooth wear as "natural aging or wearing" of teeth, but your dentist can provide treatment to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by occlusal disease.
