What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth. Each veneer is designed differently for each person, and it is considered a cosmetic dental enhancement. Porcelain veneers are made from advanced materials that mimic the appearance of the natural enamel on teeth. Many people choose to get porcelain veneers if their smile is less-than-perfect because of yellowing, stains, chips, cracks in the teeth, gaps between teeth, or minor misalignment.
Are Porcelain Veneers Permanent?
Unlike composite resin veneers that require more maintenance (as they can chip), porcelain veneers are more durable, usually lasting anywhere from 12-25 years and rarely requiring any maintenance other than normal good dental hygiene.
What Are The Different Types Of Porcelain Veneers That Are Offered?
Dental veneers are specially crafted translucent, thin shells that are permanently bonded to the teeth to improve the appearance of the smile.

Using only the highest grade of dental materials, we can tailor veneers that improve the natural smile, enhance the facial features, and support a stable, healthy bite. In the end, patients leave with improved self-confidence and knowing that their new smile was crafted especially for them.
Am I A Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
There are a few things you need to make sure of before you opt for this treatment. You must first have good overall oral health and be committed to maintaining proper oral care and hygiene. If you are going to make this investment in your smile, you want to make sure that taking care of the porcelain veneers is a major priority.
If you feel that your teeth are small and misaligned, then porcelain veneers would be the ideal option. They are made from a mold of your teeth and then sized and fit proportionately to the other teeth in your mouth.
