As noted above, the porcelain veneers will look natural. They don’t have to be bright white; instead, they can be personalized to match your other existing, natural teeth.
Myth #3: The process of placing them is very painful and uncomfortable, and will result in excess tooth sensitivity

Myth #4: Your whole natural tooth will be shaved right down to nothing to have porcelain veneers placed
Although there is a certain amount of reshaping that needs to occur in order to properly place the veneer, the shaving down isn’t nearly as much as you might think.
