Give Yourself the Smile You Deserve
Porcelain veneers, often alternatively termed dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain which are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to make a cosmetic improvement in their appearance. Porcelain veneers are routinely used to idealize teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned, you can think of them as a sort of half crown.
Veneers, are placed over the front teeth to change color shape of the teeth. Veneers are ideal for teeth that are too small, too big, or have uneven surfaces. It is very common for people to have imperfect teeth, either oddly shaped teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth,teeth with small holes in them, or an inappropriate sized tooth or teeth that have an odd appearance. Veneers solve such irregularities and create a durable and pleasing smile.
Veneers, like crowns, are made from porcelain and require similar preparation. An impression and temporaries are fabricated, however only the front portion of the tooth needs preparation. Veneers are often chosen by patients who want a beautiful looking smile and do not need a full crown.
