How To Choose the Best Veneers For Your Face Shape

The overall goal of cosmetic veneers is to enhance patients' smiles. But many patients are often unsure which veneer set will best suit their face shape.


Luckily, our experts are experienced and knowledgeable in this area. Here's a list of the most common face shapes and which veneer sets compliment them the best.

Face Shapes

Not all face shapes are created equal. Thus, when looking into veneers, you will need to pick a set that compliments that shape of your face. Here are four basic face shapes:

  • Heart-rounded veneers work best with this face shape
  • Oval - square shape veneers complement this face shape
  • Round - longer, more pronounced veneers are often used with this face shape
  • Square-rounded teeth veneers complement this face shape


It's essential to follow the standard dental chart to determine the appropriate color for your face. This will help ensure that your teeth are not too bright or dark for your face. Your dentist will guide you through the process and provide you with a color chart to use as a reference.


Picking the appropriate dental shape is crucial. You need to take both your jawline and face shape into consideration.There are a variety of tooth shapes, and depending on the shape of your face, your dentist will help you choose the appropriate tooth shape to compliment it.

The Smile Catalog

When choosing to get veneers, you will be able to look through a smile catalog. The following are some examples:

  • Aggressive
  • Mature
  • Vigorous
  • Dominant
  • Focused
  • Softened
  • Oval
  • Youthful
  • and more!

These smile types are all detailed and hyper-focused veneer sets so that you can make sure your new set of veneers does not look awkward and gives you a natural-looking smile.
