Porcelain Veneers

What is a veneer?  It is a dental device traditionally fabricated out of porcelain  in a dental laboratory.   Then it  is permanently bonded over the front surface and biting edge of the tooth for a beautiful smile. 

A veneer is an important tool in today’s choices for cosmetic restoration.   Wear on the edges of front teeth can result in a prematurely aged appearance.  When tooth alignment is a concern, a veneer may be an alternative to orthodontic treatment.   In addition, this technique  restores fractured or discolored  teeth to create a smile makeover.  Multiple veneers  close spaces and lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear.   Also, the procedure is a method to fill the black triangles between teeth caused by gum recession and provide both uniform color and shape.  The results are beautiful, natural looking, and long lasting teeth.

Penn’s Commons Dental Group has provided the Reading/Berks area with veneers and other general dental services for over 35 years.
