Veneers are usually made special for each individual so that they look just like the surrounding teeth and no one can tell that they are in fact porcelain veneers. Dentists use veneers for many cosmetic corrections that include orthodontic adjustments, teeth whitening, and more. Because veneers are extremely lifelike and provide many functions they are one of the most popular procedures and are one of the most trusted in cosmetic dentistry.
