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 versatility. They give you the option of picking the shape and shade of your teeth.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely as a cosmetic practice and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers can last a long time.
Dr. Christopher will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life. The use of an occlusal or bite guard, at night, will be highly recommended. If accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
