Veneers: Porcelain & Composite
Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of porcelain, about half a millimeter thick (the thickness of a fingernail) that are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a smile makeover. They create a beautiful result. Porcelain mimics a tooth’s structure better than any other restorative material. It is harder than enamel, so it resists wear and tear and can last for many years. Dental artists can manipulate the color and translucency to re-create the look of any tooth. And it resists stain better than tooth enamel. Very rarely will it discolor, unless the surface has been damaged.
When are Veneers Appropriate?
If you have severely dull, misshapen or discolored teeth, your treatment options may include porcelain dental veneers or composite veneers. Veneers do have the added benefits of longevity and a proven ability to enhance the appearance of the mouth, smile and other facial features that are better supported by properly shaped teeth. They are a permanent solution, and require the physical alteration of your current teeth.
At Grace Family Dentistry, we will only recommend veneers as a solution when necessary.
