A smile with a few cosmetic flaws can be completely rejuvenated with the assistance of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain our general dentist can attach over any of your teeth. The procedure is simple, and before you know it, you will be taking advantage of all that this restoration has to offer.

 

Looks Just Like Your Natural Teeth

 

Porcelain is an ideal material to use for dental restorations. Its qualities make it look exactly like enamel. Therefore, when you attach a veneer over a tooth, it is never going to stand out. You will be able to smile with ease.

 

Minimal Alterations

 

In order for the veneers to fit comfortably in your smile, an extremely small amount of enamel needs to be shaved away. Since only a small amount needs to be removed, you will not have to be in the dentist’s chair for very long. In fact, you may not even need a topical anesthetic for this procedure.

 

Resists Stains

 

Porcelain is non-porous, which means it does not have a lot of small pores for liquids and other substances to latch into. This means drinking copious amounts of coffee, wine and other stain-causing materials is not going to discolor your veneer. It will continue to be bright for years to come.

 

Many People Are Able to Benefit

 

Veneers are a great restoration for many people. Anyone with minor aesthetic issues with one tooth or several teeth can get veneers placed over the affected structures. The only thing to keep in mind is that veneers cannot fix oral health problems such as tooth decay. You will need to get any cavities or instances of gum disease under control before your veneers can be given.
