What are porcelain veneers and why is porcelain the preferred material? Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic and functional solution for a wide variety of dental concerns. Incredibly thin, custom-tailored, tooth colored shells that bond to existing teeth, veneers provide completely unnoticeable new tooth surfaces.
We exclusively use porcelain veneers at Affordable Dental Care PC because they are slimmer, stronger and far more similar to a natural tooth surface than other veneers. Your veneered teeth will form your own, completely natural smile – just whiter, straighter and more symmetrical.
