Using porcelain veneers for smile enhancement at Cosmos Dentistry

Many patients are curious to learn how porcelain veneers work. These restorations are best described as facings made of a custom-colored ceramic material. They are bonded onto the front surfaces of your natural teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length.

At Cosmos Dentistry, we use only the highest quality materials for our porcelain veneers. Our ceramists handcraft each veneer to match the unique shade and shape of your surrounding teeth. This ensures a natural-looking result that will enhance your smile and boost your confidence.

Ways in which ceramic veneers are used in the smile

Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for patients looking for a quick, easy way to achieve dramatic results. They can be used to correct a wide multiplicity of cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Discoloration or permanent staining
  • Chips or cracks
  • Misaligned or crooked teeth

Alternatives to porcelain veneers

Patients might also want to ask about other options available to them, including dental crowns and composite resin dental bonding, which are also used to achieve similar results.

Many Happy Faces

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
