Porcelain veneers are a “treatment for all seasons” that can correct many types of cosmetic problems: covering discolored teeth, lengthening teeth, mending chips, hiding spaces between teeth, or just refreshing your smile. They’re that versatile.
Dental veneers are finely crafted porcelain coverings that lay on top of the existing teeth. A small portion of your tooth is smoothed away to accommodate the extra bulk of the veneer. Veneers are then bonded directly to teeth. (Similar to an artifical press on fingernail, but much stronger.)
The main advantage of dental veneers is to provide a fresh new smile without major cutting down of tooth surfaces. The result is a beautiful, long lasting restoration that won’t stain over time like a tooth colored filling can.
