Porcelain veneers can replace and align crooked or missing teeth. Often called “instant orthodontics,” veneers can create a beautiful smile in a relatively short amount of time. Veneers are thin strips of porcelain that can be permanently bonded to existing teeth to create straight, healthy-looking teeth without the use of traditional orthodontics, like braces or retainers. Veneers can also be used to replace missing or chipped teeth and, when applied properly, are indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Maintaining your new smile will be easy because veneers are stain-resistant and highly durable.
