Porcelain veneers are laboratory fabricated facings bonded on the tooth surface to improve the color of the teeth, close small spaces, improve the appearance of teeth and change the shape and size of teeth. They are indicated in certain situations and are a very useful dental technique producing esthetic results. Minimal tooth structure is prepared, an impression is taken and a dental laboratory fabricates the veneers. Porcelain veneers can maintain their glossy appearance and color over a long period of time. See also our dental implants information.
