What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative, there is no reason to put up with gaps between your teeth, teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct these maladies, simply and quickly, helping you achieve a beautiful smile!
What is the Difference between Veneers and Lumineers?
While veneers and Lumineers are designed to cover unattractive teeth, each provides a unique approach to this common dental issue. As traditional veneers are made of porcelain, the tooth must be buffed to prevent the look of bulky teeth. In contrast, Lumineers are ultra-thin which allows them to be placed directly on the teeth without preparation. During your consultation with Dr. Sheehan, we’ll discuss which of these cosmetic options is best for your smile.
Will They Look like Normal Teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Because they are thin, light can shine through them and they take on the natural color of the underlying tooth.
How Durable are Porcelain Veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. When you choose dental veneers from our Waterford dental practice, you can trust that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
