Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

Rochester Makeover Dentistry Before After PhotoVeneers are made from dental porcelain, a very sturdy ceramic material. The porcelain is handcrafted into a shell shape that conceals the front of the tooth, restoring both natural color and aesthetic attractiveness to your smile.

You might be a candidate for porcelain veneers if you're unhappy with your smile because of issues such as:

  • Deep discoloration
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Crookedness or uneven spacing

Our dentists offer premium porcelain veneers including Empress, Aurum, and Feldspathic. However, many patients ask us about Lumineers®, a popular brand renowned for its ultra-thin design and limited preparation requirements. Dr. Sussman and Dr. Pogal can discuss which veneer will best fit your smile during a free consultation.
