Porcelain Veneers

How Teeth Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Your dentist might recommend tooth veneers when your teeth are:

  • Discolored
  • Stained
  • Worn
  • Chipped
  • Misaligned
  • or Orthodontics is not a practical option

Teeth veneers can be a valuable tool in cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth veneers are thin, customized shells of tooth-colored material designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth improving their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers typically don’t require extensive shaping prior to a procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative to bonding.

According to WebMD a tooth veneer can be made from porcelain or resin composites.

  • Porcelain veneers resist stains and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth than resin.
  • Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement than porcelain.
