Porcelain Veneers, also referred to as dental veneers or porcelain laminates, are wafer thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of teeth to create a cosmetic improvement and sometimes a bite improvement. Porcelain veneers have successfully improved smiles by making dark teeth look lighter and healthier looking. They can make yellow teeth permanently whiter and gray tetracycline stained teeth look much more natural. Porcelain veneers can make crooked teeth look straight in just a few days. Patients can look and feel more confident, more professional and have a wonderfully natural looking smile.
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea or even cigarette smoking. Veneers and laminates have a natural appeal to them. Porcelain veneers are brushed, flossed and treated just like natural teeth. You should not even know they are in you mouth as they become integrated into your natural tooth structure.
Porcelain fused to metal crowns, also known as caps, slide over teeth to hide misshapen, misalignment, cracks, discoloration, or other imperfections. Crowns decrease physical discomfort in teeth, look completely natural, and offer extra support to those that are weak or damaged.
