Dr. Danielle Wehle offers porcelain veneers to patients who have damaged teeth. They are an optimal restoration because they consist of thin shells that require minimal removal of enamel to work. If you are wondering whether this treatment is right for you, then consider the following benefits.

Bite related issues from movement in the teeth on just the upper or lower jaw
Gum tissue loss
