Porcelain Veneers Albuquerque
A veneer, also known as dental veneers or dental laminates, are extremely thin, porcelain restoration that typically covers one surface of the tooth–usually the surface that lies in the cosmetic zone of a patient’s smile. These personalized shells are made to cover the outside of the tooth’s surface.
The shells of veneers are bonded to the outside of the tooth and effectively alter the shape, color, and even size of the tooth. Veneers are a great option that can help patients who have discolored, misaligned, or chipped teeth. It will normally take three visits to complete the procedure as porcelain veneers need to be custom fit for each patient prior to bonding.
Veneers are often used in cosmetic dentistry and many times are not covered by insurance. To learn more about porcelain veneers in or around the Albuquerque area, contact Dr. Billie Adams.
