Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers

If you hide your smile more often than you show it because you’re embarrassed by gaps, chips, cracks, stains, or other cosmetic smile blemishes, then it may be time to consider porcelain veneers. The ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain are designed to mimic the appearance of your teeth, and can be bonded to their front surfaces to create an instant, near-total smile makeover. Their lifelike appearance and ability to address multiple issues at once make veneers one of the more popular and versatile cosmetic dental enhancements today.

When to Consider Porcelain Veneers

To place your porcelain veneers, your dentist will first have to prepare your teeth by sculpting a small amount of enamel from their front surfaces (usually less than 0.5 mm).

Because of the preparation, veneers are a permanent, and are usually recommended when other cosmetic treatments will not suffice. Common reasons to consider porcelain veneers include;

  • Your teeth stains/discoloration do not respond to professional teeth whitening
  • Your teeth are too blemished for bonding/contouring to suffice
  • You have one or more teeth that exhibit a variety of different blemishes
  • You want to completely makeover your smile with minimal alterations to your teeth
