Placing porcelain veneers is a popular way to enhance your smile. Porcelain veneers are thin laminates that are placed onto the front portion of your teeth to enhance the esthetics of your natural smile. Veneers can correct crowding, chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are an excellent replacement for composite bonding, and the process is less invasive than being fitted for crowns – porcelain simply covers the imperfections in your own smile.
Porcelain veneers are extremely lifelike and hold their radiance, unlike bonding, which over time can appear unnatural. Despite porcelain’s translucence, it is an extremely strong material. Veneers come in a wide range of tooth colors, so finding your perfect match is easy.
Porcelain veneers can also be used for cosmetic repositioning, also called “instant orthodontics,” as an alternative to traditional metal braces or retainers.
