Porcelain veneers have a nickname: instant orthodontics. That’s a pretty accurate description, too. Veneers are microthin layers of dental porcelain or composite resin that Dr. Katherine Lee or Dr. Brian Lee bond to the teeth that people see when you smile. In this way, porcelain veneers instantly correct a number of cosmetic flaws such as:
- Teeth that are irreversibly stained or discolored and have not responded to professional teeth whitening
- Teeth that have wide spaces between them
- Misshaped teeth
- Teeth that are smaller than other teeth
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Slightly crooked teeth
If your smile is beset by any of these imperfections or another flaw that makes you unhappy or hesitant to smile, then talk to one of us at Dentistry at Windermere. You may be a perfect candidate for porcelain veneers or another treatment called Lumineers®.
