Porcelain veneers are routinely used to idealize teeth that are:

  • Stained or discolored
  • Worn
  • Chipped
  • Misaligned
  • Alternative to orthodontic treatment

For decades dentists have had available to them materials that can create a durable bond to tooth enamel. These bonding materials are used to securely attach a thin sheet of porcelain (the porcelain veneer) to a tooth. Although porcelain is inherently brittle, when it is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure (a tooth) it becomes very strong and durable.
