Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are arguably one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions currently available. These thin, fingernail-like covers are applied to the outer enamel of the teeth where they work to cover any cosmetic imperfections and improve the overall appearance of the teeth. In doing so, porcelain veneers can transform any smile and give patients greater confidence to share their smiles with the world.

Porcelain veneers are unique to each patient and can be applied individually to address an issue with a single tooth, or in sets so that you can improve virtually any part of your smile. They can also be created in a variety of different shades, making it possible to match individual veneers to your natural teeth so that they look extremely discreet or, alternatively, so they can change the color of your entire smile.

What cosmetic issues can be corrected using porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers have been shown to be extremely effective and successful in treating a variety of different cosmetic dentistry issues including:
  • Covering chips, cracks and other minor imperfections
  • Closing small gaps between the teeth
  • Adding thickness to teeth that are set back from the rest of the arch
  • Adding height to teeth that are undersized or have been eroded
  • Covering stains and discoloration
If you are unsure whether your cosmetic issues can be corrected using porcelain veneers, your dentist will be able to advise you.
