Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to give it an improved shape, color or size. Porcelain veneers are a more conservative alternative to dental crowns since they require less “prepping” (or removal) of the tooth’s original surface and structure. At Dentistry of Del Mar, porcelain veneers and crowns are designed to do this and much more. Dr Rutley has taken the art of porcelain veneers and crowns to a much higher level.
