Stained teeth can be whitened (most of the time), and gapped or misaligned teeth can be closed with orthodontia or Invisalign (most of the time). Chipped or broken teeth however, need to be replaced. If you’re dealing with any or all of these oral health concerns, there are two versatile cosmetic dentistry solutions that can give you a new smile in just a short time: porcelain veneers or Lumineers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored pieces of porcelain that cover your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom made and shaped to fit your mouth and complement your appearance.
