Few people are born with perfect teeth. It is very common to have teeth that are stained, chipped, gapped or misaligned. When this occurs on the front teeth, your smile appearance and overall self-confidence can be threatened. Fortunately, there’s a way to hide your dental flaws and regain pride in your smile using a simple yet highly popular solution in cosmetic dentistry – porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are often the secret weapon of a beautiful smile makeover. While it may seem like a painful or lengthy procedure, veneers are minimally invasive, easy to place and can be completed in just a few office visits. Most of all, they are a permanent solution to a more attractive smile!

How Are Veneers Placed

Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded on the front surfaces of your front teeth. They are not intended to actually correct your imperfections. Instead, they can permanently hide them! In order for the veneers to strongly bond to your teeth, your enamel must be slightly etched away. However, once the veneers are in place, you can use them and care for them just like your natural teeth!

What Can Veneers Do For You?

One of the main reasons why veneers are so popular is that they can address a wide range of teeth imperfections. Patients may qualify for porcelain veneers if they have the following types of concerns on their front, visible teeth:

  • Chips
  • Stains/Discoloration
  • Misalignment (crooked teeth)
  • Missized (unproportioned) teeth
  • Gaps
