In this post from Michelsen Dental in Orange CA, we are taking the time to answer a common question: “What exactly are porcelain veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are attached to the front of a patient’s teeth, and can cover chips, stains, decay, or teeth that are slightly crooked.
They are also a great choice to cover teeth that have dulled over the years. Veneers can transform your smile into something spectacular!
One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered, in order for the veneer to properly adhere. Once they’re in place, they are permanent. But when they are, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.
