(sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance.
Veneers placed on the surface of affected teeth can vastly improve badly stained, shaped or crooked teeth. Comprising thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth, they also allow patients to change the color or shape.
Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or those that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy & color stability than bonding, and resist staining from coffee, tea or cigarette smoking.
Are You Ready For A Change?
Porcelain Veneers can mask undesirable defects (teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure) and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between front teeth or those that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.
The process entails diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding. And the result: a brand new, confident smile!
