What is a porcelain veneer?
Veneers are very thin porcelain laminates (as thin as 0.3 mm), which are securely attached via special dental adhesives to the front part of your teeth only. This eliminates any heavy cutting of front teeth, which is more desirable. Veneers can change an entire smile.
Porcelain laminate veneers are highly aesthetic and can mask any imperfections of your natural teeth such as gaps, staining, chips, and even slanted or rotated teeth. They require a minimal amount of tooth reduction (approximately 0.3 to 0.8 mm) and are therefore a more conservative restoration than crowns (caps). Porcelain veneers allow us to alter tooth position, shape, size, and colour of your teeth. They are truly a remarkable tool to restore your smile.
