Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells of ceramic material, which are bonded to the front of the teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolorations, brighten teeth, and improve a smile. Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking, the wafer-thin porcelain veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options. The most commonly used veneers in our office are Lumineers.
