Veneers are ultra-thin high-stregnth shells of ceramic material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. Porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten severely discolored teeth and to improve a smile in many ways. Veneers can literally change your smile in just a few weeks.
A significant advantage of placing porcelain veneers as opposed to cosmetic dental bonding is that a porcelain veneer's surface is just that, porcelain. Since porcelain is a ceramic, and therefore glass-like, a veneer's porcelain surface will be extremely stain resistant. Wafer-thin dental veneers give an aesthetically pleasing naturalness unsurpassed by other restorative and cosmetic dentistry options.
Generally, dental veneers last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed. To find out more or to schedule an appointment, please contact our practice today.
