Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry solution that can correct several problems at once. Teeth that are discolored, chipped, slightly crooked, and/or unevenly sized can be transformed into a white, even, and beautiful smile with one treatment. Thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth, covering imperfections and sealing chips, small holes, and eroded enamel. If you are considering porcelain veneers in New Jersey, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb will be happy to evaluate your smile and your dental health and help you decide is porcelain veneers are right for you.
Ideal Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
