PORCELAIN DENTAL VENEERS
Custom porcelain dental veneers are a beautiful, life-like means to permanently correct stained, cracked, chipped, or crooked teeth. The result is a bright, straight and natural-looking smile.
The translucent quality of porcelain veneers closely resembles natural tooth enamel which has the same effect. When light strikes a natural tooth’s surface, it penetrates the tooth enamel and then reflects off of the opaque dentin layer that lies beneath the enamel.
Without this translucent quality, the teeth would not be luminous. Porcelain dental veneers replicate the lustrous quality of natural teeth.
Bonding Veneers to the Teeth
Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a laboratory and processed for a perfect finish. The veneers themselves are made of a thin, glass-like ceramic sheath that is securely placed onto the surface of the teeth. Only a minimal amount of tooth reduction is required for porcelain veneers. In addition to create a beautiful smile, porcelain veneers are durable and do not decay.
Permanent porcelain veneers can usually be placed in two or three cosmetic dentistry visits—from the initial tooth preparation to the final step of cementing the veneers to the teeth.
Our dentists at Twilight Dentistry offer sedation dentistry to provide you even greater comfort during the preparation and placement of porcelain veneers. If you have dental anxiety, our experienced dental professionals can help you choose which level of sedation is right for you.
