Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental or Porcelain Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance. They’re made of porcelain or resin-composite materials that are permanently bonded to your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers are used to treat a number of different cosmetic problems:

• Chipped, broken or worn teeth
• Crooked, uneven or crowded teeth
• Spaces or wide gaps between teeth
• Permanently stained or discolored teeth
• Smaller-than-average teeth

Porcelain veneers can make a dramatic difference in the way your smile looks. Some patients may only need one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth. However many patients have six to eight teeth fitted with veneers in order to create an even, symmetrical smile – usually the top front eight teeth.

With dental veneers, we can change the size, shape, color, and position of your teeth within a few visits.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers include:

• Look and feel like your natural teeth
• Resistant to staining/discoloring
• Long lasting and durable
• Improves your smile and your confidence
