Porcelain Veneers

Description

Porcelain veneers are porcelain shells that are placed over the front surface of teeth to conceal cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Azari explains how veneers can conceal imperfections, such as stains, chips, and more, and can be paired with other treatments, such as orthodontics, for the best possible smile. Veneers are a permanent solution that last about 10 years.
