How Porcelain Veneers Work
Does your smile have noticeable craze lines, chips, or stains? Perhaps gaps between teeth? These are all conditions that can be successfully treated with porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your smile.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are cemented onto the outer surfaces of teeth in order to correct flaws. What's great about veneers is that they can be shaped and tinted to perfectly match your natural teeth.
What are porcelain veneer procedures like?
There are a few things you should know when you undergo cosmetic treatments with porcelain veneers. For one, a half-millimeter of tooth enamel must be removed in order for the veneers to be applied. Therefore, your natural tooth enamel is permanently altered. Porcelain veneers are also expensive; depending on the location of the procedure and the materials used, you can expect to pay somewhere between $500 to $1,300 for each tooth.
