If you are unhappy with your smile, dental veneers can bring about a drastic positive change to your physical appearance. These wafer-thin slices of porcelain, which are bonded to the front of the teeth, can be an ideal cosmetic solution for teeth that are stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned.
Porcelain veneers can also be utilized to seal small gaps in teeth, improve a gummy smile, lengthen short teeth, and boost the overall appearance of your smile.
In addition, if a tooth is not in line with other teeth, a porcelain veneer may be fitted to bring it back to the correct position. Unlike other dental materials, the surface of a porcelain veneer is largely resistant to staining from elements, which usually cause stain damage to teeth.
Since porcelain is glass-like, its surface is extremely smooth, impervious and translucent. This means that when porcelain veneers are bonded onto a tooth’s surface they mimic the light handling characteristics of enamel. The result is natural, life-like appearance.
