What exactly are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are thin, shell-like layers of durable porcelain that are bonded to the surfaces of your natural teeth for the treatment of minor cosmetic dental problems.

What cosmetic dental problems can be corrected with porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can be used to treat a wide range of minor cosmetic dental imperfections including:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth

Is the porcelain veneers procedure painful?

The placement of your porcelain veneers is a painless outpatient procedure. The experienced Pittsburgh cosmetic dentists at Dentonics take great care to ensure your safety and comfort in every procedure.

How long do porcelain veneers last?
