Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain is a material very similar to the color, look and feel of natural tooth enamel. If you have severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to tooth whitening methods, Dr. Yazdan will help you choose a natural-looking color of white that will give you the smile you are looking for.
Veneers can also correct a jagged or misshapen tooth. If you’ve suffered injury to your mouth, you may have tiny cracks or chips on the surface of your teeth that veneers can effectively cover.
Fortunately, porcelain veneers are long-lasting. They are made of an extremely durable, translucent material with texture similar to tooth enamel. They are generally not susceptible to decay and should resist heavy staining, so even as time passes, your new smile should remain intact.
Advantages And Benefits Of Dental Veneers
There are many benefits and advantages to getting porcelain veneers:
- The procedure of placing cosmetic veneers takes only two appointments
- A conservative amount of tooth structure is removed during the porcelain veneer procedure
- Porcelain veneers are the most biocompatible material you can use next to the gingiva (part of the gum tissue that immediately surrounds the teeth and alveolar bone)
- A healthy “natural” look is achieved; in fact, porcelain veneers are the most aesthetic restoration in dentistry
