Porcelain veneers, which are also known as dental veneers or teeth veneers, are thin shells of tooth-colored material that cover the front of your teeth to improve your smile. These shells are attached to the front of your teeth and can improve the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.
While dental veneers can be made of other materials such as resin composite, they are usually made from porcelain because the material is fairly resistant to stains and reflects light in a similar manner that your natural teeth do. Porcelain veneers can help the appearance of teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, or misshapen.

To give you an example of how porcelain veneers can improve your smile, here are before and after pictures of one of our patients, Claudia, who had undergone a dental veneer procedure in our office. Before the procedure, Claudia had worn and chipped upper front teeth. We restored her smile with only 2 porcelain veneers on the two upper front teeth resulting in a dramatic smile transformation.
