What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are bonded over your existing teeth. As they require little or no tooth preparation, porcelain veneers are considered a better choice than crowns for healthy but cosmetically flawed teeth. From gaps and chips to discoloration or unevenness, veneers can fix a wide range of cosmetic issues.

Veneers are much more durable than other common options such as bonding, and are more stain resistant than your natural teeth. With proper care, they can easily last for 10 or more years. With a range of shades to choose from, the dentist can carefully match your veneers to your existing tooth shade, avoiding the fake “game show host” look that many people fear.

Depending on the current condition of your teeth, veneers can be used alone or in tandem with other solutions such as tooth whitening or Invisalign. Of course, if you have any existing dental health problems such as cavities or gum disease, those issues will be treated before your veneers are placed.
