What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are made of a thin, translucent porcelain that is permanently bonded to your tooth, improving both functionality and appearance. Veneers are designed to reflect light and imitate the color, shape and texture of your natural teeth, blending in perfectly.

How can porcelain veneers fix my smile?

They are ultra thin shells of ceramic material, which is directly bonded to the front of your teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be an ideal choice for improving the appearance of front teeth. Porcelain veneers are a suitable cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions of the front teeth, including:

1. Closing diastemas (spaces between the teeth)
2. Covering up unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
3. Correcting broken or chipped teeth
4. Covering permanently stained or discolored teeth
5. Correcting misshapen or crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers will result in an esthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
