Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain “shells” or “coverings” that are bonded (attached) onto the front surface of the natural teeth in order to protect them or to improve their appearance. This minimally invasive method helps correct minor tooth damage and any structural or aesthetic imperfections. Cosmetic issues such as cracks and chips, gaps between teeth, shape irregularities or enamel discoloration can easily be addressed successfully using this relatively simple technique. Whether the ultimate goal is the improvement of functionality or aesthetics, a very close collaboration between the Clarence Rockland Dentist and the dental laboratory is essential. Working together, they have to capture and reproduce the colour and the anatomy of the restoration so that it blends seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth. This will not only protect the teeth but also enhance your beautiful smile!
