Convenient, Highly Lifelike Smile Makeovers

Improving your smile can often seem like a bigger challenge than it is. For example, if you have several teeth that have different types of blemishes, such as discoloration, chipped edges, excessive spaces, and more, then porcelain veneers may be able to improve them all. Veneers are ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain, which are custom-designed to match the healthy color and texture of your teeth. Each veneer is hand-crafted to mimic the healthy appearance and shine of your tooth, and then permanently bonded to its front surface. This gives veneers the ability to completely revamp the appearances of several teeth, even when they exhibit a variety of cosmetic imperfections.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Their versatility is one of the greatest benefits of porcelain veneers, but their popularity is due to their highly lifelike appearance and conservative placement procedure. The porcelain used to create each veneer is custom tinted to closely match the tooth’s healthy, blemish-free color and shade. It’s also layered to reflect light to the same degree as the enamel on your surrounding healthy teeth. Because each veneer is typically less than 0.5 mm thin, placing them requires minimal tooth preparation, which helps ensure the long-term health and integrity of your teeth.
