Individually sculpted to cover the front of teeth, Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin laminates with the power to transform a patient’s smile immediately. For patients with cracked or chipped teeth, teeth that are poorly shaped, gaps between teeth, or severe staining, Porcelain Veneers represent a predictable solution that is sure to boost self-confidence for years to come.
It’s no secret–Porcelain Veneers are a highly trusted and popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Advancements in dentistry have made veneers even more lifelike with new types of porcelain that reflect light nearly the same as natural tooth enamel. In addition, great strides have been made in digital imaging, allowing dentists to create restorations in-house that mimic the shape and natural color of a patient’s teeth. Even so, some dentists have combined porcelain veneers with other cosmetic dental treatments, providing a more comprehensive result.
Chances are, if you’re considering Porcelain Veneers, you have some concerns about the structure or appearance of your teeth. While it’s best to consult with your dentist about your candidacy for porcelain veneers, here are a few considerations:
- Patients should have healthy teeth and gums
- Patients should have specific cosmetic goals and realistic expectations
- Patients should have a sufficient amount of healthy tooth enamel
At this point, the benefits of Porcelain Veneers may seem clear. Yet, it’s important to know that they resist staining from coffee and tea, as well as cigarette smoke. In fact, even the darkest teeth can appear bright white with porcelain veneers. This is because they are comprised of high-tech dental materials. Another benefit to porcelain veneers is that there is little prep required. In other words, only a minimal amount of natural tooth structure must be removed before placing them. With the power to transform your smile, Porcelain Veneers often provide an even better appearance than that of an original tooth.
