Advances in cosmetic dentistry make it easy for patients to correct imperfections in their smiles. From a complete smile makeover, to discreet alignment of crooked teeth, patients can custom-design their smiles.
In some instances, patients may wish to fix a multitude of problems without numerous procedures or lengthy time commitment. For those patients, porcelain veneers may be the ideal treatment. The term veneer refers to a thin, aesthetically pleasing laminate layer.
Porcelain dental veneers are ultra-thin layers of custom-designed porcelain that are bonded securely to the front of the teeth to change their appearance. Highly versatile, veneers resolve a variety of issues such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Stains and discoloration
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
- Teeth that are too small, too large, or have an odd shape
Porcelain is an ideal material for dental restorations because it reflects light and responds to temperature fluctuations similarly to the tooth’s natural enamel. Porcelain is also very stain resistant. With porcelain veneers, a patient can dramatically improve the appearance of his or her smile for many years.
Porcelain veneers do not require special maintenance. Brushing and flossing appropriately, and visiting the dentist once or twice per year for professional cleaning and examination will help to keep veneers looking attractive for a long time.
