Porcelain veneers are a great solution for improving and beautifying your smile.
Porcelain veneers can reshape teeth, change tooth color, close gaps, and fix worn or chipped teeth to create a white uniform smile. The thin veneers are bonded to the teeth and are nearly invisible. They are also resistant to coffee, tea, and cigarette stains. They greatly resemble healthy white tooth enamel and are strong. At Zak Dental, our team of dentists work with precision to cosmetically improve the look of your teeth, and make sure that your porcelain veneers match the rest of your teeth so that they blend in beautiful.

Veneers are a type of conservative dental restoration that can be used to conceal a variety of imperfections in visible tooth enamel, including minor discoloration, pitted and irregular enamel, crooked, cracked or heavily restored teeth – and those with deep stains such as those caused by tetracycline and fluorosis.
Preparing teeth for porcelain veneers typically involves removing at least some enamel from the visible surfaces to prevent the veneer from being too bulky. The veneer thickness depends on the type of porcelain used and other factors.
When finished, porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth so that the edge or “margin” is not visible.
In the ideal case, the contours of a veneered tooth will be very similar to those of a natural tooth. Veneers can produce truly stunning results when the goal is to whiten or change the color or shape of a patient’s teeth. To allow the veneers to slide over the tooth, the teeth are prepared on their visible surfaces to create a slight taper. Placing the margins on the non-visible surface of the teeth serves two functions: it helps give the bonded veneer additional resistance to dislodgement, and it ensures that any staining that may occur along the margin is not visible in the smile.
Finished veneers produce incredible aesthetic results that can last for decades with proper care.
