Many patients choose porcelain veneers to cover misshapen, misaligned, discolored, chipped, crowded or gapped teeth that otherwise are relatively intact. Through a minimally invasive procedure, veneers can completely transform a smile.
Thin shells of metal-free, high-strength ceramic porcelain are digitally fabricated, then etched on the inside and bonded to tooth enamel.
Veneers are permanent; for their application, a small amount of tooth structure must be removed to make room for the porcelain veneer and to avoid "Chiclet" teeth (teeth that resemble Chiclets chewing gum – big, bulky, and too white). Tooth preparation is limited to the enamel and usually involves only a few surfaces, unlike a crown or cap.
Porcelain veneers are a conservative way to correct significant aesthetic problems – with beautiful, natural-looking results.
