Veneers, also referred to as porcelain veneer or porcelain laminate, are a thin wafer like material which is tooth colored that is designed to cover the front portion of the teeth. Dental veneers are indicated to correct and repair chips and cracks, improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.
Tooth Discoloration is any change in color and translucency of the tooth due to any cause.

A person is said to have a “gummy smile” when more than 3 mm of the gums are visible while smiling. A gummy smile is characterized by a larger upper jaw bone when compared to the lower jaw bone, and the appearance of a stretched upper lip, causing an excessive display of gums when a person smiles. A gummy smile can be corrected for both aesthetic and functional aspects.
