What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers are thin shells customized from porcelain which are bonded to your teeth.   Veneers are a comfortable way to improve the look of your front teeth.  Unlike tooth bonding, in which a resin facing is applied in one appointment to the surfaces of the tooth, veneers will not discolor or stain over time.
