Porcelain veneers, sometimes called tooth veneers, can be used to correct many cosmetic problems in both color and shape. Veneers are placed over the front teeth to change the color or shape of the teeth. Veneers are ideal for teeth that are too small, too big, discolored or have uneven surfaces. It is very common for people to have imperfect teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, or an inappropriate sized tooth or teeth that have an odd appearance. A beautiful, natural looking smile can be created with these thin porcelain coverings, many times without having to drill the underlying teeth. Porcelain veneers are essentially shells that are bonded over your natural teeth. They solve such irregularities and create a durable and pleasing smile.
