Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. As a cosmetic dental procedure, dental veneers create a brighter, whiter smile composed of more perfectly aligned and shapely teeth. The translucent quality of today’s porcelain veneers provides a more natural look. This allows a beautiful and natural looking smile.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Each case is designed individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Despite the cause of unattractive teeth, veneers alone have the ability to solve most, if not all, of your cosmetic concerns regarding your smile and existing teeth. These problems include:
-Wear and Tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Older teeth are more likely to have cracks, chips, or an uneven appearance.
-Worn Enamel: The thin, hard white substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled, and discoloured over time.
-Uneven Teeth: Uneven length or width of teeth can be the result of teeth grinding or general wear.
-Genetics: Certain people may be born with abnormal appearance of teeth or spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.
