What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of translucent porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of teeth to conceal flaws. The porcelain is incredibly durable and so realistic-looking that veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are a more conservative option than porcelain crowns, since they require less tooth structure to be removed. When a patient receives a smile makeover with veneers, he or she can expect straighter, whiter, and more even-looking teeth – a complete smile transformation.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Because of the many benefits of porcelain veneers, they are a popular choice among our patients. Among these benefits is the fact that porcelain veneers can camouflage a range of dental problems, including:
Crooked teeth – Veneers are bonded to the surfaces of teeth to make them appear straight and perfectly aligned without traditional braces.
Discoloration – Veneers cover discoloration and stains and are crafted to match the natural teeth flawlessly. This makes them a longer-lasting alternative to teeth whitening.
Worn teeth – If a tooth is worn down, we can have veneers crafted to add length to the tooth, making the smile look younger and stronger.
Chipped teeth – Porcelain veneers completely conceal chips and other imperfections in the tooth, providing a beautiful, unblemished result.
Veneers can also be used as a non-invasive wrinkle eraser; by improving the way in which the teeth support the lips and surrounding skin, veneers can diminish wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance.
