Porcelain Dental Veneer: Before & After
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored porcelain shells that are bonded to the fronts of the teeth. A dental veneer make your teeth instantly appear straight, restore worn teeth to their youthful original shape, improve the teeth’s color, or repair chipped or cracked teeth beautifully. Having an engaging smile that is both durable and easy to achieve is making porcelain veneers one of the most widely chosen procedures at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, proudly serving the greater Mountain Brook area.
Porcelain Veneer Benefits
Porcelain closely resembles the properties of natural tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is translucent in nature, meaning it allows light to pass through part of it before it is reflected back. This is what gives teeth their characteristic appearance. Porcelain shares this characteristic with natural enamel making a porcelain veneer behave and react to light like enamel so that it looks just like the real surface of your tooth.
Another great advantage that a dental veneer, made of porcelain, has is that porcelain is very resistant to staining. Unlike other materials used in the past, porcelain is far less porous and smooth making it far less likely to pick up permanent discoloration or stains.
A dental veneer can close small gaps between teeth, repair and reshape broken or chipped teeth and cover stains or discolored teeth to give you a natural, healthy smile that you can feel good about.
