Porcelain Veneers are thin, semi-translucent porcelain coverings bonded permanently to the front the tooth. They require a minimal amount of alteration to the natural tooth and are an excellent choice for:
- Whitening discolored or stained teeth
- Minor realignment of imperfectly spaced teeth
- Filling in the gaps between teeth
- Supporting weak or cracked teeth
Due to their tooth-like translucent quality, porcelain veneers are a great choice for tooth whitening, providing a very natural and healthy looking smile. They are ideal for correcting the color of just one tooth or an entire mouth. They are non-porous so stains and discoloration appear less frequently than on natural teeth.
Instead of a weak or cracked tooth being removed, porcelain veneers are often used to stabilize or strengthen, and therefore extending the life of the tooth.
Porcelain Veneers can also be an alternative to braces: many people with slightly crooked teeth or minor gaps between teeth choose porcelain veneers as an option to orthodontics.
