Porcelain veneers have quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments because they are quite versatile.

As a minimally invasive procedure, you will have the results you want in as little as two appointments.
By placing veneers on your teeth, they can cover an array of imperfections, like dark tooth discoloration that does not respond to traditional whitening treatments. This will provide you with long-term results because porcelain in stain-resistant.
Often, they can also be used to cover chips and cracks while giving abnormally shaped teeth a more attractive appearance—perfect for those who have a gummy smile. In some cases, they can even be used to make your teeth appear straighter. You can close gaps and cover miner alignment issues without having to spend months wearing braces.
When compared to veneers of the past, those made from porcelain allow the procedure to be less invasive. They are thinner than those made from other materials. As a result, less of the tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process.
After your teeth have been cleaned, a small amount of enamel will be removed to ensure that the veneers sit flush. Then, impressions are taken to create your veneers to match your exact size, shape, and color needs. While the dental lab creates them with precision and accuracy, temporary ones will be attached. In about two weeks, you will return to our dental office to have your final ones bonded in place.
With porcelain veneers in Porter, you will make a true investment in your confidence. Not only will you cover the flaws that cause you to feel insecure, but you will achieve natural-looking results. Porcelain closely mimics the appearance of enamel, so no one will be able to tell that they are not your natural teeth.
Although the veneers are thin, they remain strong and durable. With the right aftercare, they can last for an average of 10 years before needing to be replaced.
