What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain designed to cover the front surface of the natural tooth. It’s mostly a cosmetic procedure, but it can also help restore minor to moderate damage to the tooth, such as cracks or chips.
- They dramatically improve the appearance of teeth
- They are stain-resistant
- They are a permanent smile upgrade
- They provide long-lasting results, with some patients keeping their new smiles for as long as 20 years with the right maintenance
- They require slight shaving of the enamel to create a rough surface texture to properly bond with the tooth
- They are a permanent commitment. Tooth enamel does not regenerate, so opting for veneers is a life-long decision.
