Selecting the appropriate material is an important factor in successfully treating problem issues in cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain is one type of material that is functional in nature but natural looking as well. Today, many patients at our SanBruno, CA Cosmetic Dentist Office choose porcelain veneers to treat various cosmetic problems because they replicate both the strength and appearance of natural dental enamel. Porcelain veneers dramatically transform smiles in a relatively short amount of time, often requiring only a few appointments to achieve desired results.
Porcelain Veneers can treat the following cosmetic problems:
? Cracked/chipped dental enamel ? Misaligned teeth ? Gaps between teeth ? Dark or stained enamel ? Pitted/grooved teeth
If you are suffering from any of these or similar issues, Porcelain Veneers may be the best course of treatment for you.
Why Choose Veneers?
There are many cosmetic options available today to treat cosmetic dental issues. Why choose veneers rather than another procedure? The truth is that you should weigh all of your potential options when making the right decision for your individual situation. The primary benefit of porcelain veneers, however, is that they'll blend with your natural teeth because they so closely replicate natural dental enamel.
Porcelain is a suitable option for a number of cosmetic solutions because it reflects and absorbs light much like natural dental enamel. It can easily be shaped and shaded to match your natural tooth color. Porcelain has a smooth, glass-like finish that keeps your veneers stain resistant while retaining that dazzling white look for years.
Traditionally, porcelain is often thought to be a fragile material. However, we at SanBruno, CA Cosmetic Dentist Office know it's true strength when used in dental applications. Porcelain veneers make chewing and routine oral hygiene normal and comfortable because they do not put additional strain on surrounding teeth. Dentists and patients alike recognize the attributes of porcelain as the preferred material for dental restorations, and both highly recommend it when creating smiles that will last for years to come.
