Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are bonded to your teeth for many different reasons. Veneers are routinely used to enhance your smile but many times are also used to protect the teeth from wear (grinding) and to re-establish a proper bite. Teeth that are prepared for veneers have very little healthy tooth structure removed and sometimes require no preparation at all.
Veneers can improve teeth that are stained from external sources such as food, drinks, and tobacco-use, as well as teeth that are stained from certain medications. Veneers can sometimes be used in place of orthodontics to improve the appearance of malformed or misaligned teeth. Imperfections such as chips, gaps, and old fillings can all be hidden with porcelain veneers.
Each veneer is handmade by our master ceramist to precise specifications. We like each patient to have input in designing their smile.
