There are numerous cosmetic dentistry options available to resolve whatever oral health complaint you may have, but porcelain veneers in particular offer a great deal of advantages.
Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or longer if you take adequate care of them. If properly placed, they do not crack, stain or detach from the tooth, meaning you could have them for decades without needing retreatment. Also, a major blow or trauma to the face can damage a vaneer the same as it would a natural tooth.

Once the shape and size are right, she will take impressions, 3D models for the dental lab to create the veneers, then she will bond them to your teeth.
Most patients do not experience pain or discomfort after the procedure; some feel a mild soreness in their gums or jaw and over-the-counter medication is enough relief.
