Would you like a more attractive smile? Are your teeth chipped, cracked, broken or misshaped? Discolored or stained? Are there unsightly spaces between your teeth? If you answered yes to any of the above questions you might be a perfect candidate for porcelain dental veneers. Porcelain veneers are one of the most natural looking options available to improve your smile. In certain cases, veneers can transform your smile so you may not need years of orthodontics.
Porcelain veneers are made from a very thin layer of porcelain (a glass or ceramic type of material) about the thickness of your finger nail or a contact lens. Because porcelain veneers are so thin very little of your tooth needs to be reshaped.
Porcelain veneers are so thin (0.3mm to 0.5 mm) light is transmitted through them easily giving your teeth a very beautiful and natural appearance. You will never see a dark line with porcelain veneers. See photo
- Porcelain veneers will not stain and are highly resistant to breakage.
- Porcelain veneers are attached to your teeth using a dental bonding adhesive. Once the porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth they become strong.
- You can have your porcelain veneers and a beautiful new smile in just two visits.
