Porcelain veneers are a very conservative procedure to restore size, shape, or color of a tooth. They are a thin layer of porcelain permanently bonded to a tooth.
Porcelain veneers are often utilized in cosmetic dentistry. They are a veneer of porcelain that is bonded to the front of teeth which can change the shape, size, or color of a tooth. They are much less invasive than a full porcelain crown. Porcelain veneers are frequently utilized in cosmetic dentistry to enhance the beauty of one’s smile. Porcelain veneers can be used in conjunction with all porcelain crowns. Veneers are sometimes done in plastic which are less costly but do not last as long and they discolor over time. Porcelain veneers have the same longevity as a crown restoration. Porcelain veneers can be made utilizing CEREC Technology in one visit. Our office has a glazing oven in which we can modify color in order to match the veneer exactly to your other tooth color. One of the greatest services that we can offer our patients is that if you break your front tooth, we can restore your front tooth with an all porcelain crown or porcelain veneer in one visit. We will match the color perfectly as well. Porcelain veneers are a long term, conservative restoration which can restore tooth structure or cosmetically enhance one’s smile.
