Porcelain veneers are eggshell thin custom made covers of tooth colored materials that are custom made to go over your existing tooth. When a veneer is placed on a tooth, the front surface is covered with porcelain, which helps to improve the overall aesthetic of your smile. Veneers are permanently bonded to the front of your tooth. They help change the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.
What Are Veneers?
What Do Veneers Fix?
Stained and discolored teeth that do not respond well to bleaching make excellent candidates for porcelain veneers. If your teeth are worn down or chipped at the edges, porcelain veneers can be a great treatment option. In some cases, veneers can even be used to close gaps between teeth, removing the need for orthodontic treatment.
Am I A Candidate?
If your teeth are chipped or cracked, stained or discolored, misshapen, worn, or slightly crowded, the answer is yes. Because veneers are lab created to be so super thin, they can easily and seamlessly be applied to your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile. This is the ideal treatment for you if you want to improve your smile with as little treatment as possible.
Porcelain Versus Composite Veneers
Porcelain veneers are stronger and more durable than an in-office composite veneer. That is because we take an impression of your tooth and your veneer is custom made in a lab. The result is a restoration that is a perfect fit for your individual tooth. Porcelain veneers are very stain resistant and often look better than composite veneers. That is because composite restorations cannot reflect light the same was as porcelain.
