CONFUSED? What is a porcelain veneer or laminate? It is a thin shell like covering that our dentist will custom make to fit, covering over your existing teeth. Many Hollywood actresses have veneers to give them straight, white, regularly shaped teeth!
Pros – cheaper than crowns, this is a clever way to quickly get the smile you want – whiten your stained teeth ( especially your front upper teeth), reshape your chipped, or misshapen teeth, or even cosmetically enhance crooked teeth. Our modern technology now makes laminate material that is translucent and natural looking, so it will ‘fit’ in color will with the rest of your teeth. Our dentist needs to check your occlusion and lifestyle is suitable for veneers.
Cons – you need to take good care with your veneers, and avoid biting down hard on hard food, or bones. Veneers are not suitable for back teeth.
