What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers or dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the original tooth. Porcelain veneers enhance the size, shape, and color of your teeth and rank among the most trusted and popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, brighten teeth, and improve a smile.

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size, or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by coffee and tea and damage from an injury. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.
