When Dr. Halper creates your porcelain veneers, he will choose a shade of porcelain to match your natural teeth. Dental porcelain has the same shiny, white look as healthy tooth enamel and your veneers will look the same as your other teeth. Only you and the doctor will know that you have veneers. If only a few veneers are made, they are matched to the color of your neighboring teeth and tooth whitening is an excellent option for a good result. If you want a really white, straight smile, you’ll want more veneers.

A porcelain veneer is a thin cover of porcelain which is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. It is a way of replacing an impaired front surface and usually includes the biting edge to make your tooth straight, smooth and stronger than it was before. Several veneers are usually done in one procedure to rejuvenate and refresh a smile and correct defects such as:
  • Large chips
  • Large and small gaps
  • Discoloration that is not responsive to tooth whitening
  • Unevenness
  • Worn down teeth
  • Peg Laterals
