Why choose porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a popular option for many patients seeking enhancement of the smile. These restorations can be made specifically for a patient to ensure a natural look.

- Misaligned teeth
- Stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth

When the anterior teeth are imperfect, most patients will find porcelain veneers to be their best option. However, alternatives such as composite resin bonding may also be used. Composite resin bonding is less expensive, performed in one day, but is more susceptible to staining and only lasts a few years before replacement is needed. Dr. Christopher T. Griffin will describe all options to patients and help them choose a solution best for their lifestyle and budget.
