Porcelain veneers cover the front of a tooth, transforming the tooth’s shape and color. A veneer is made up of a thin layer of porcelain or a composite material, which is of a medical-grade. Many patients decide to have veneers placed to cover discolored teeth, eliminate a gap between teeth, cover chipped or cracked teeth, or to reshape a tooth. The process requires at least two trips to the dentist, and can greatly improve the look of your smile. The team at Lane Family Dental will use current technology and make sure you are comfortable with the procedure before your veneers are placed. The end result is natural, and a beautiful new grin.
