Porcelain dental veneers, or porcelain laminates, are composed of a thin custom-made ceramic tooth-colored material designed to enhance tooth aesthetics or to protect against further tooth damage and decay. Porcelain dental veneers have surged in popularity over the past decade and have become a versatile treatment option for many patients looking to: whiten their teeth, brighten smiles or to mask tooth discoloration. Porcelain dental veneers can also be utilized in cases where there is a need for minor orthodontic work, as long as there isn’t any severe crowding or misalignment prevalent.
Porcelain dental veneers are bonded to cover the front surface of your teeth, altering the: color, shape, size, and length of their appearance based on what your individual goals are. Porcelain dental veneers can be composed of either porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers are heralded for being able to stand up to nasty tooth-related stains induced by coffee, tea and cigarette smoking as opposed to their resin veneer counterparts. Furthermore, porcelain has been found to closely simulate the light reflecting properties of your own teeth, leaving you with an enhanced, yet natural-appearing smile.
