Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material services, which are bonded by specialized materials to the front of teeth. These are the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the anterior teeth. They are used in cosmetic dentistry to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth, and to improve a smile and aesthetics.

Patients who clench or grind their teeth are not good candidates for veneers because the thin veneers may chip, break or peel. As childrens dentist will often recommend, avoid biting your fingernails and chewing on hard objects such as pencils or ice. Like any dental restoration, veneers can be dislodged over time and with wear.
