What are porcelain veneers?
Sometimes called dental veneers, these laminates are raiser thin, custom made tooth colored materials crafted to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. The sell shaped materials are bonded to the front of the teeth to change its shape, color, size or length.
What do veneers routinely fix?
- Teeth that are discolored. Common causes of tooth discoloration include root canal treatment, excessive wine drinking, ingestion of tetracycline or other drugs, large amounts of fluoride, and the existence of surplus amounts of resin
fillings all can potentially lead to tooth discoloration.
- Teeth which are worn down from excessive grinding or other use
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Misaligned, uneven or uncommonly shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth (veneers close the separating space)
Dental veneers are constructed using resin composite materials or porcelain materials. Bear in mind, porcelain veneers resist stains much more effectively than their resin counterparts. Porcelain veneers also mimic natural and artificial light properties to better illuminate and show off natural looking teeth.
Porcelain dental veneers can last a lifetime if proper care and attention are implemented into your dental hygiene routine. It takes a highly skilled and experienced dentist to place porcelain dental veneers in their proper place appearing natural, pleasing and symmetrical to the naked eye.
