What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are one type of cosmetic treatment that we offer to provide patients with exceptional esthetic transformations. A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell crafted out of multiple layers of porcelain. Like your own teeth, which are made of multiple layers of translucent tooth tissue, a veneer is quite similar. You can expect a natural finish that allows your own tooth to gently shine through, so onlookers cannot tell you have achieved a façade over your smile with a cosmetic solution. After customizing the shells to your preferences, we will bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth for a long-lasting, beautiful smile.

The Cosmetic Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

We will speak with your about your preferences for your veneers, which offer a long list of potential benefits. You may choose one improvement or several, which may include the following:

  • Veneers improve the shape of your teeth, which we can customize to blend more harmoniously with your other facial features
  • We will select the new, improved shade of your smile for a whiter, brighter appearance
  • We can improve tooth length and width, which will address problems with uniformity and asymmetry
  • Veneers will fill small gaps between your teeth, often without the need for braces
  • Porcelain veneers will cover up blemishes and small imperfections like chips, cracks, and isolated stains
