What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are made out of a thin material that covers the front of an individual tooth. New dental technology has allowed for a minimal amount of the natural enamel to be removed from the tooth prior to placing the veneer. Our team can create a custom veneer to closely resemble the look and feel of the tooth’s natural enamel. They help to correct several issues including the following:

  • Stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained enamel
  • Small gaps in between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
