Porcelain veneers explained
Dr. Jamil Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental describes porcelain veneers as thin facings that are bonded over the front of teeth to completely change their appearance. Porcelain veneers have become incredibly popular as patients see how natural and beautiful they look. There are several benefits to using porcelain veneers when compared to alternative treatments. For example, porcelain veneers are:
- Easy to care for
Veneers are made after the natural tooth is prepared. This may require the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the front of the tooth. After this has been done, the dentist takes impressions of the front of the tooth and then sends these to a dental laboratory for the fabrication of the new restorations. Porcelain veneers are then bonded onto the tooth once completed for a dramatic improvement.
Veneers are versatile and can be used in many situations. Veneers can bond over teeth that are fractured or chipped, restoring appearance. They are used to cover teeth that are misaligned or gapped. Some patients use veneers to cover teeth with permanent staining that does not respond to traditional bleaching.
