Porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of custom fabricated porcelain used to restore teeth. Porcelain veneers are very durable once bonded to the tooth and can be used for a variety of situations. One of their advantages are they do not require as much tooth reduction as many other restorative options such as crowns. Porcelain veneers allow the clinician the ability to be minimally invasive and preserve significant amounts of tooth structure. Typical uses for porcelain veneers are to restore a tooth to health. If a tooth has been treated with a number of small fillings a porcelain veneer can be use to provide a more predictable long term restorative solution. Porcelain veneers can also be use to restore worn teeth. Most people are familiar with the use of porcelain veneers for smile makeovers but porcelain veneers are a very versatile form of restoration for a tooth.
