A porcelain veneer is a thin piece of ceramic which is bonded permanently over the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance.

Veneers can make improvements to the size, shape, color, position, and alignment of the front teeth.  Porcelain is a very strong and durable material which is much more resistant over time to wear and discoloration than traditional white bonded fillings.

Veneers are often the best option for patients who have chipped or unusually shaped teeth, deep discolorations that will not whiten, or minor crowding or spacing of the front teeth.
