Dr. Qing is an American Board-Prosthodontist who specializes in veneers restorations. What sets Dr. Qing's crowns apart is the detail. The biggest advantage of veneers is that the procedure is very conservative. Very little tooth structure needs to be prepared to receive veneers. Dr. Qing can actually control the tooth preparation amount conservatively while effectively to receive the veneers and restore the smile. Other key elements for achieving long-lasting, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing veneers lie in the finer points. These include the margin seal, which prevents any leakage after extended use, occlusion that ensures a comfortable and long-lasting functional bite, and color match, which provides a beautiful tooth and smile.

Veneers are thin shells that are designed and fabricated to fit over the front of your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. They are made from porcelain, EMX or Zirconia, and are custom-made to fit your teeth. Veneers can be used to fix a variety of dental issues, including chipping, extreme discoloration, naturally misshapen teeth, diastema (excessive gaps between adjacent teeth), etc.
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers cover the front of teeth, so they’re often a good choice for smile makeovers or to cover teeth that are discolored or stained. Veneers are a great cosmetic solution for patients who want to dramatically change the appearance of their smile. The material is stain-resistant, and the color can be customized to match the rest of your teeth.
Advantages of Veneers
For the right candidate, veneers provide numerous benefits:
- A durable, stain-resistant surface that looks just like your natural teeth
- A way to correct minor alignment issues like slightly crooked teeth or a gap between two teeth
- A way to make discolored teeth look whiter
- A way to mask minor cosmetic issues like small chips or flaws in a tooth’s shape

Porcelain, zirconia and Emax are the most common material used in making veneers. Another popular option is composite resin veneers, which are more economical, but also quite resistant to stains, relatively strong, and can be customized to mimic the appearance of your natural enamel.
