What are Porcelain Veneers?

In today’s world there are a variety of options for people who are unhappy with their teeth to finally achieve the smile they once had or always wanted. One popular option is porcelain veneers Etobicoke, and today we’re taking a look at this cosmetic procedure.

How Porcelain Veneers are Designed

Porcelain veneers are thin shells compiled of multiple layers of thin ceramic, and are designed to replace original tooth enamel using an adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth. Each veneer is custom made for your tooth using impressions. A small part of the original tooth enamel is removed to create room for the veneer to fit in the mouth and restore natural tooth function.
