Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that affix to the front surfaces of teeth to conceal cosmetic dental flaws. Before placement, porcelain veneers resemble a fingernail in size and shape. Once attached to the teeth, your veneers will look like a healthy, natural part of your smile. Stain resistant and durable, porcelain is the ideal material to create a flawless smile that will last.
Porcelain veneers are a great option to correct the appearance of smiles with a number of chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. Some patients who may want to take advantage of this versatile treatment option include:
Porcelain veneers are placed in two trips to our Murphy dentistry office. At the first visit, we prepare teeth by removing a small layer of surface tooth enamel.
