Although porcelain veneers are thin slivers of porcelain, they are durable and provide functionality when bonded to the surfaces of your natural teeth.

Your consultation with Brentwood cosmetic dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf will help you determine if porcelain veneers are the best treatment for your individual needs and aesthetic goals. Porcelain veneers can conceal a number of minor cosmetic dental flaws including cracked or chipped teeth, deeply stained teeth, misshaped teeth, and unevenly spaced teeth.

Porcelain veneers gain their strength in part by being bonded firmly to the fronts of your natural teeth. When placed by a knowledgeable cosmetic dentist, porcelain veneers have a seamless fit over your teeth, allowing normal functionality while rejuvenating your smile.

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can provide you with a beautiful smile and functional bite for years to come. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Brushing should be followed at least once a day with flossing, ensuring that you floss carefully between your teeth and veneers to remove lingering food particles.
