What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and biting surfaces of your existing teeth.
Very little of your original tooth structure has to be removed before adding veneers and they are made of durable reinforced porcelain to produce some of the most life-like colors and shades available today.
Veneers are the treatment of choice for a beautiful, natural looking smile, and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers, you have no reason to put up with unwanted spaces between your teeth.
Beautiful porcelain veneers can also cover stained, chipped, misshapen or even crooked teeth. All of these issues can easily be corrected to help you achieve the gorgeous smile you’ve always dreamed of!
Will they look like normal teeth?
This is the first question on everyone's mind and the answer is yes, they absolutely do.
When bonded to your teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains.
There is no other treatment option that compares to porcelain veneers in terms of strength, appearance, and their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel. They are thin and light shines through them, giving them a life-like color and texture that matches natural teeth.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
Current research shows that bonded porcelain veneer restorations are one the strongest bonds we have in dentistry. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers will enhance your smile for many years to come.
Since veneers are bonded to the existing enamel of your natural tooth, thousands of tiny micro-tags lock the veneer in place. This forms an incredibly strong bond that is unmatched by other treatments.
During your consultation appointment with Dr. Marriott or Dr. Josh, they will give you a clear idea of what your teeth will look like and let you know if you are a good candidate for veneers or a different treatment option.
