What are Porcelain Veneers?
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 effectiveness and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. It takes a highly trained artistic eye, as well as skill level to create beautiful, yet natural looking smiles by using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are usually the option of choice when creating a big change in a patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers can be used to change color, shape, size, positioning, and inclination of teeth. A drastic change can be created by using porcelain veneers.
Will my porcelain veneers look like normal teeth?
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, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
Dr. Jedwab will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable. Their length of service will depend on many factors including level of home care and being careful not to overload the veneers. Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
