What Can Porcelain Veneers Correct?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


You may have heard about the role of porcelain veneers in smile makeovers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that get applied directly to your natural tooth. Each veneer is modeled to fit the unique shape of your teeth, and they can correct a wide range of issues.

Because each porcelain veneer is specifically designed for your individual teeth, they can be used to correct a number of common cosmetic dental problems, including:

  • Staining or discoloration: Years of drinking tea, wine, coffee or cola can stain your teeth. Use of tobacco products are another cause of discoloration. While tooth whitening can address these issues for some, more serious discoloration may need to be corrected with porcelain veneers.
  • Uneven spacing: Porcelain veneers can fix gaps between teeth in two visits rather than the months or years needed for traditional orthodontics treatment.
  • Damaged teeth: Porcelain veneers can be a great solution for teeth that are worn down, chipped or cracked, restoring the brilliance to your smile.
  • Crooked teeth: Porcelain veneers can be modeled to improve the appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth without the cost or pain of braces.

Whether you are frustrated with teeth that won’t respond to whitening, or are interested in a smile makeover, porcelain veneers may be the right solution to deliver the beautiful smile you desire.
