Many times patients will come to me and ask me, "What can be done to improve my smile" because "I'm not happy with either chips in my teeth," "discolorations in my teeth," or "spaces between my teeth," and they want a long-lasting, predictable procedure. What we can provide them with is a porcelain veneer, which is a thin laminate made of porcelain that is bonded to the teeth, either upper or lower, or both. What this can do is correct all these situations in, usually, one or two visits. Again, patients are amazed at the results that they get with this procedure. Sometimes, we do what's called No Preparation Veneers, which some of them are known to the public as Lumineers. If it's a minor alteration we don't really have to do anything to the teeth other then take an impression and have the lab make up a set of veneers, and bond them to the teeth. It's quite dramatic.
