A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth that improves the aesthetics of a smile and may also help protect the tooth's surface from damage. One of the main materials used to fabricate a veneer is dental porcelain. Porcelain Veneers are a cost-effective type of cosmetic dentistry that can improve discolored, worn, chipped, or crooked teeth in your smile. Veneers are also valuable as a way to make teeth resistant to future problems associated with staining agents in your diet or habits. These restorations can be used to create a beautiful new smile!
