When you choose porcelain veneers to repair unsightly teeth, you’re going to see dramatic results. The dental office of Dr. Charles McCluer uses ultra-thin porcelain veneers to correct chipped, weakened, or discolored teeth.

Benefits of porcelain veneers
Do you have yellowed teeth? Teeth can become discolored from many causes, such as excessive fluoride or the use of tetracycline or other drugs, or can be discolored or yellowed in other ways. Porcelain veneers – also known as dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates – can give you the bright white teeth you’ve always wanted. So no more yellow smile!

Dental veneers can also be made of resin instead of porcelain, but porcelain veneers are more effective at resisting stains. And porcelain veneers are also better at reflecting light the way natural tooth material does, so they give you an even more natural appearance.

What’s more, porcelain veneers can fix a lot of other cosmetic problems – so you’ll no longer have to be self-conscious about gaps in your teeth or unsightly chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers can help with teeth that are worn down, misshapen or misaligned.

But veneers aren’t purely cosmetic: Porcelain veneers can help return real structural integrity to your damaged teeth, with the side benefit that they look as good as the original teeth ever did – and probably better.

How porcelain veneers work
Veneers are custom made, wafer-thin “shells” of tooth-colored porcelain that are made to cover the front of the tooth or teeth being repaired. Porcelain veneers can be used to create several different effects. For instance, a veneer can be used to change a tooth’s color, shape, size or length.

Porcelain veneers fit over your natural teeth, with a finish that is translucent to help the veneer blend in with the surrounding teeth. So people you meet won't notice your tooth – they'll simply see your beautiful, natural smile.
