In as little as two visits, you can get that new smile that you’ve always wanted, in the most comfortable dental office you’ve ever visited. Traditional porcelain veneers, alternatively termed “dental veneers” or “dental porcelain laminates,” are wafer-thin shells of porcelain permanently bonded to teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are non-porous (they will not stain), incredibly resilient, and “kind” (non-abrasive) to opposing teeth. When a veneer is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure (like a tooth) it becomes very strong and durable.
A veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth a cosmetic veneer covers the visible part of a tooth, preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. Veneers can straighten, lengthen, and whiten teeth to provide a beautiful smile and even create a more comfortable bite position. For optimal results, each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means that a thin layer of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for veneer placement.
Advantages of Veneers
Porcelain veneers resist staining. A significant advantage of placing porcelain veneers is in the nature of their material. Since porcelain is a ceramic and therefore glass-like, the porcelain surface of veneers will be extremely stain resistant.
Porcelain veneers can be used to repair minor tooth imperfections and defects. Teeth that have small chips or whose surface is worn or misshapen are often good candidates for porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover over and conceal fillings that have become stained or discolored. Old fillings and previous attempts at cosmetic bonding that have become discolored can be easily corrected with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers can be used to make color changes for teeth that have permanent stains. Some teeth are naturally discolored. This includes teeth that have tetracycline, fluorosis staining, and those that have darkened as a result of physical trauma or root canal treatment. In many cases these teeth are good candidates for porcelain veneers.
In some cases, porcelain veneers can be used as alternatives to orthodontic treatment. Porcelain veneers can be used to close the spaces (called a “diastema”) between a person’s teeth. In cases where teeth are slightly crooked to extremely crooked, porcelain veneers can be used to create an instant orthodontics effect.
