Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are used to correct many different dental problems for children, and can improve the appearance of your child’s teeth, especially if his or her teeth are:
Stained or discolored
Although porcelain veneers are more expensive than resin veneers, your dentist may recommend porcelain because they are more stain resistant, last much longer (10-15 years), and look more like natural teeth. This means that the veneer will be less noticeable, and your child will have a more confident smile for years to come.
