Porcelain Veneers (Laminates)

Porcelain veneers (also referred to as dental laminates), are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth.

They’re generally about .5 to .6 mm thick. That’s about 1/2 the thickness of a dime or twice the thickness of an eggshell.

The primary purpose for placing veneers is to improve the appearance of teeth.

They’re routinely use as a way of making changes for those that are discolored, worn, chipped or malformed, have spaces between them or are slightly misaligned.
