Porcelain Veneers: what to know
Porcelain veneers are a type of dental veneer placed on the tooth’s surface, covering the front and side. Made of high-quality ceramic material, porcelain veneers will offer the most natural-looking outcome and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Dr. Trinkner can customize the color of your porcelain veneers to complement your teeth and overall appearance. They can also be placed to change the color of your teeth if you have stains or discoloration that is resistant to bleaching agents in tooth whitening. Factors to consider when it comes to choosing porcelain veneers include:
- They are permanent: placing porcelain will require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel so that the veneers can adhere to the teeth and remain stable. It is enough tooth structure to make them a permanent restoration, meaning you will need to replace them if they become damaged.
- Porcelain veneers are highly durable: the strength of the high-quality ceramic material provides a lasting and stable result. With good oral hygiene and dental care, they should last for many years.
- Thye look like natural teeth: once placed and polished, porcelain veneers will have the luster of natural tooth enable and be indistinguishable from your other teeth.
- Stain resistant: although it is important to be aware of the effects of consistent consumption of dark beverages on them, porcelain veneers are generally stain-resistant and, with good oral hygiene, can remain stain-free.
