Dr. Nammy talks about porcelain veneers, what they are, what they are used for, and how they can be used to give you a beautiful smile.
Porcelain veneers are a wonderful product for patients who want to change the shape of their teeth. What they do is… I like the analogy of a press-on nail. The way that veneers work, it’s a facing that goes on top. It’s a facing that goes to change the shape, color, and size of the teeth, which we would not be able to do otherwise. The reason why they’re so great is we’re able to save a lot of natural tooth structure. Instead of grinding your tooth down to a peg with a crown, we can do a veneer, which is a facing on the outside of the teeth, and we can save a lot of natural tooth structure, and still give you a really beautiful smile.
