Dental Porcelain Veneers aren’t just for Hollywood stars and celebrities anymore. As more and more people learn the value of good image, many consider having their teeth restored with cosmetic veneers.
Some common culprits that cause discoloration include coffee, tea, some medications, as well as nicotine from smoking cigarettes. While staining is the leading cause of teeth discoloration, genetics may also play a part, as some people naturally have whiter enamel than others.
During a cosmetic porcealin veneer restoration, composite or porcelain dental porcelain veneers are placed over the teeth to change its color and shape. In addition to solving discoloration problems, the treatment is also ideal for fixing disproportionate teeth sizes.

Are Dental Veneers for me?
Not only do dental porcelain veneers cost less than crowns—installation of these thin porcelain or plastic dental veneers also require less work, in turn preventing the risk of trauma that causes sensitivity and other tooth problems. Veneers are patterned from tooth impressions and fabricated in a dental laboratory from porcelain substrate.
When the dental veneers are ready, they are then glued over the front of the teeth, usually with little to no anesthesia required. While porcelain veneers require at least two visits to your dentist, composite veneers require only a single visit, as the application and bonding of the composite veneer is done directly on the surface of the tooth.
Having composite dental veneers installed gives you an instant solution to your stained or crooked teeth. However, porcelain veneers are more resistant to staining and are very durable, lasting from 10 to 15 years.
