Porcelain veneers can change the shape, color, length, or width of your teeth. A veneer is a thin, semi-translucent sheet of porcelain that is custom crafted by an expert ceramist and then permanently bonded to your teeth. While veneers are not suitable for every patient, they are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth. These conditions include spaces between teeth, broken or chipped teeth, stained or washed-out fillings, permanently stained or discolored teeth that cannot be bleached, or crooked teeth.
One of the great advantages of veneers is that only a small amount of tooth structure is removed during the procedure resulting in a healthy “natural” look with little or no discomfort during the procedure. Another advantage is that the procedure usually takes only two visits. Veneers can last indefinitely when taken care of properly. They are also more resistant to stains and chipping than regular bonding.
