Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. As a cosmetic dental procedure, porcelain veneers create a brighter, whiter smile composed of more perfectly aligned and shapely teeth. Their translucent quality provides a beautiful and more natural look than has ever been available in the past.
Porcelain veneers can help solve many cosmetic dental problems such as:
- Everyday wear and tear on your teeth. Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Older teeth are more likely to have cracks, chips, or an uneven appearance.
- Worn Enamel. The thin, hard white substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled, and discolored over time.
- Uneven Teeth. Uneven length or width of teeth can be result of teeth grinding or general wear.
- Genetics. Certain people may be born with abnormal appearance of teeth or spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for many years to come.
