Porcelain veneers, type of dental veneer, are custom made, wafer thin tooth coloured restorations of porcelain that are placed over the face of the tooth. They are one of the most natural and aesthetic restorations in dentistry. When bonded to the surface of the tooth, the teeth veneers mimics nature and are very robust and durable.
Porcelain veneers are a prosthetic device, by prescription only, used by the cosmetic dentist. A dentist may use one veneer to restore a single tooth that may have been fractured or discolored, or in most cases multiple teeth on the upper arch to create a big bright “Hollywood” type of smile makeover.
