Porcelain veneers are called many different things such as dental veneers, facings, porcelain laminates, or simply veneers.

If you are experiencing an issue with discolored, cracked, misshapen teeth or have teeth that are spaced too far apart, this procedure should be discussed with your dentist at TLC Dentistry.
Porcelain veneers cover your teeth like a mask. A glass or ceramic type of material that resembles tooth enamel’s color, called porcelain is used. Veneers are simply very thin layers of this porcelain. The thickness of veneers resemble a contact lens. Porcelain veneers are durable, resilient, and very stain resistant.

Learn About Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are more expensive than indirect or direct composite resin veneers. Traditional porcelain veneers cost between $925 and $2,500 per tooth but can last 10 to 15 years. Composite veneers cost approximately $250 to $1500 per tooth and may last between five and seven years.
Porcelain is made from a clay that has a paste-like quality and is fired at high temperatures. The process was first mastered in China in the 1300s. This Chinese porcelain is made from a hard-paste clay fired at very high temperatures, producing the white, glass-like, finish that we associate with porcelain.
