Porcelain veneers are small pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that have made a significant impact in esthetic options for you. Many popular “make-over” shows demonstrate how veneers can improve smiles – crooked teeth can be made straight, dark, stained teeth can be made bright and beautiful, short teeth can be made longer. Veneers made of porcelain resist staining, too, so they remain beautiful for many years. “Lumineers” are a brand of veneers that require minimal preparation of your natural teeth. You and your dentist can decide which type of veneers are appropriate for your new smile.
