If your teeth have worn down enamel or have chips or cracks in them, or if your teeth are uneven from grinding, dental veneers can restore your dazzling smile.
Also called porcelain veneers, these veneers are custom-crafted ceramic shells that are bonded to cover the surface of your teeth to create beautifully colored and shaped teeth. Although porcelain veneers are usually considered cosmetic dentistry, they also can be used to protect damaged teeth.
If your dentist suggests veneers, but you grind your teeth at night, your dental professional will probably also create a protective mouth guard for you to wear at night. You may need to avoid eating especially crunchy foods.
