What are porcelain veneers?

Complicated dental procedures aren't the only options if you'd like to correct smile imperfections and flaws—veneers offer a simpler option. These thin tooth-shaped shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement, hiding a variety of flaws.

Veneers are made of porcelain, a translucent material that looks just like tooth enamel. They're available in practically any shade of white imaginable, making the restorations a good choice whether you want to match the color of surrounding teeth or whiten your entire smile.

How are my teeth prepared for veneers?

Preparation entails that your cosmetic dentists removing a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the fronts of your teeth. Don't worry—this enamel removal is completely free from discomfort and doesn't affect the structure of your teeth.

Once the enamel has been removed, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth. Technicians at a dental laboratory then use the impression to create restorations that look and feel natural.

Can porcelain veneers really help my smile?

Veneers conceal many types of aesthetic issues, including physical damage and discolorations. Do you have a tooth that looks a little unusual? Whether the problem is a bumpy surface or an odd shape, veneers can help. Adding a veneer to your tooth will conceal uneven surfaces or make a crooked or twisted tooth look perfectly straight. Finally, veneers can also add length to short teeth, making them a particularly good choice if your teeth have shortened due to nighttime grinding.
