Porcelain veneers are an incredibly versatile restoration that can allow you to transform your smile in just a few dental visits. The veneer covers the front of the tooth and replaces part of the enamel. This creates a new surface for the tooth and allows the veneer to conceal just about any aesthetic flaw. Our Los Angeles porcelain veneer expert can help you decide if veneers are the right choice for you.
Some options in getting veneers include:
1. Composite veneers
Composite resin, which is used in tooth-colored fillings, is sometimes used to make veneers. These veneers are applied in the office and are typically less costly, but they may not last as long and can stain over time.
2. Porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are among the most popular type of veneers. They do take longer to place than composite veneers, but they also last longer. The porcelain reflects light naturally, so they look like natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are one of the most effective ways to conceal cosmetic flaws.
3. No-prep veneers
No-prep veneers are a special type of porcelain veneer that requires minimal preparation and can often be placed directly over the natural tooth with no drilling or shots.
