What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are custom fabricated and bonded to the front surfaces of your natural teeth to disguise imperfections. Veneers have become an increasingly popular aesthetic service because they are a quick way to give your smile a dramatic boost.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
- Natural Looking – Veneers are made from porcelain, a ceramic material that mimics many of the natural properties of tooth enamel. Their lustrous finish will look just like natural teeth.
- Versatile – Veneers can correct multiple issues simultaneously, from small cracks and chips to gaps between teeth. Patients can also opt for a veneer to enhance a single tooth or transform an entire dental arch.
- Low-Maintenance – Caring for porcelain veneers is as easy as brushing and flossing your natural teeth. Good, routine oral hygiene can keep your veneers lasting for many years.
The porcelain veneers process
Having veneers placed takes two separate visits to the office. During your first appointment, the dentist prepares the teeth for the placement of the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel. This gives the space necessary for the veneer to be bonded to the front of the tooth and not stick out. Impressions are then taken and sent off to a laboratory along with specifications on what shade of porcelain should be used.
Once the veneers are ready, you will return to the office for placement of the veneers. The dentist will check for proper fit before bonding them to the front of the teeth. Small adjustments can be made in the office to ensure you are completely satisfied with your final results.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
