Porcelain veneers are custom designed individual shells, made from a thin layer of porcelain and bonded to the surface of teeth. Veneers are an important tool used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the aesthetics of a patients smile and/or give extra strength and protection to damaged tooth enamel. They are also used as an alternative to other dental procedures such as crowns or teeth whitening. Veneers are typically placed on the front visible teeth and improve the appearance of your teeth by changing the tooth size, color and shape. Multiple veneers can be used to create a “Hollywood” type of smile that many people want. Although veneers can be made from different materials, porcelain is commonly used because it naturally resembles tooth enamel and is long lasting. Unlike crowns, only a small amount of enamel may need to be shaved off to bond the veneers and some patients require no shaving at all. If you would like some kind of improvement in your smile, contact Gendler Dental Center to schedule an appointment and find out whether porcelain veneers are appropriate you.

Porcelain veneers are commonly used to correct problems such as:

  • spaces between teeth
  • crooked teeth (too minor for braces)
  • broken or chipped teeth
  • worn down teeth
  • permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • “gummy smiles”
