Porcelain VeneersAn Overview
Porcelain veneers are the cosmetic solution for repairing and enhancing your smile. Dental veneers are a high quality, permanent dental restoration designed to repair minor cosmetic blemishes. Dental veneers look and function like natural teeth and require no additional maintenance.
A porcelain veneer is a ceramic shell made from a tooth-like material that attaches to the front and sides of a prepared tooth. The shell is ultra-thin, custom colored and shaped to blend seamlessly with adjacent teeth for a natural result. The veneer is bonded permanently to the existing tooth.
Porcelain veneers can be used to restore a single tooth or on multiple teeth for a total smile makeover. Made from a highly durable and light reflective material, dental veneers are able to achieve beautiful cosmetic results and protect the tooth structure from further damage or decay.
Veneers are commonly used to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Repair a chip or cracked tooth
- Straighten a crooked tooth
- Reshape a misshapen tooth
- Whiten a discolored tooth resistant to whitening gels
