Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of ceramic. They are custom-made for specific situations where teeth need to be covered up to disguise problems. Patients find that porcelain veneers are readily available, affordable, and beautiful. They can last many years with proper care and can be a wonderful investment in the enhancement of the natural smile.
Porcelain veneers do require patients to make irreversible changes to their natural teeth, so they should be considered with care. In order for porcelain veneers to be added to the tooth structure without additional bulk, the dentist must remove a very thin portion of the front tooth enamel. This is filed down before impressions are taken. The molds made from these teeth are used to fabricate the porcelain veneer that will bond over the tooth for coverage. Most porcelain veneers will last a decade or longer, as long as patients take great care to protect them and care for them between dental visits.
