What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an ideal option to consider if your teeth are badly stained, misshaped, or you have spaces in between your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic or porcelain that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. Veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by most other restorative options.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patientís smile. Dr. Murphy will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
