These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, size, or length. Porcelain veneers help resist stains and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull, which is in front of the ear on each side of your head. The joints are flexible, allowing the jaw to move smoothly up and down and side to side and enabling you to talk, chew, and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control the position and movement of the jaw.
