When you see celebrities with gorgeous white teeth, chances are they have undergone a smile transformation that involves porcelain veneers. These thin, custom-fabricated shells made of tooth-colored materials are used to resurface stained, pitted, and worn enamel. They also provide very satisfactory results when used to close overly large spaces and correct minor irregularities and crookedness of front teeth. Materials used for veneers include acrylic plastic and composite, but porcelain is often preferred for its durability, stain resistance, and natural look. The big advantage that veneers provide over tooth crowning is that they require very little alteration of the natural tooth beyond removal of sufficient enamel to accept the thickness of the veneer. The results are extraordinary.
