Porcelain veneers are made from ceramic material and are bonded to the front of teeth. The material used for porcelain veneers is highly resistant to permanent staining from smoking, coffee, or tea and the bond is extremely adhesive to the tooth, making replacement almost unheard of. Porcelain veneers can be used to whiten teeth, close spaces and create a great smile. Using porcelain veneers, virtually "instant orthodontics" can straighten crooked teeth and give you the bright smile you always wanted. What do porcelain veneers cost?
