Porcelain veneers by jaime lee dds

Patients who suffer with uneven teeth, excessive chipping, inconsistent spacing, distracting discoloration, and worn enamel all benefit from porcelain veneers, an innovative cosmetic process that completely redefines the smile. Unlike other options, veneers resist staining and place no stress on the gums. In order for the veneers to appear natural, a dentist works with a laboratory to create fully customized veneers that precisely match the patient’s current tooth color and formation. The tailored veneers, a thin casing constructed from durable porcelain, covers the front of the tooth, providing added strength and an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Sometimes, a dentist may recommend veneers to protect damaged teeth from sustaining any more trauma, playing an important preventative role. Generally, veneers remain strong for more than two decades.
