How does it work?

- Hide/fix surface cracks and chips
- Cover oddly-shaped teeth
- Directly whiten your teeth
- Make your teeth appear balanced and aligned
If there are certain issues (e.g. cracks, chips, discoloration, gaps, misalignment, etc.) you don’t like about your teeth which negatively impact the quality of your smile, Porcelain Veneers are probably an ideal solution for you to fix them all. Known for resisting stains and discoloration, they are incredibly strong and will shield your teeth from cracks and chips.
