Porcelain Dental Veneers – Cosmetic Dentistry at Its Most Advanced
Ask any cosmetic dentist which treatment is most fundamental to a complete smile makeover, and he or she will invariably place porcelain veneers at or near the top of the list. Dental veneers are custom-crafted using the highest-quality porcelain to ensure the most natural-looking and durable results possible. Porcelain veneers are also among the most versatile of all cosmetic dentistry treatments, as they can be used to alter the size, shape, texture, and color of teeth that have suffered aesthetic damage. After just two visits to the dentist’s office, you will emerge with a mouth full of healthy looking, radiant teeth.
So what is it exactly that makes porcelain veneers look so much more natural than other dental restorations? For one thing, porcelain mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel. Unlike dental bonding materials, porcelain allows light to pass through its surface to the surface of the tooth, precisely like tooth enamel.
Another reason behind the realistic appearance of porcelain veneers is that they can be crafted to match surrounding natural teeth with extraordinary precision. Not all teeth are exactly the same color, and porcelain can be shaded so that they blend perfectly with the color of surrounding teeth. Or the patient might choose to whiten his or her natural teeth and have the veneers matched to that color.
It has been said that porcelain veneers represent the pinnacle of cosmetic dentistry. At Artistic Expressions Dentistry, we would welcome the opportunity to show you exactly why this is true.
