What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are dental restorations made of medical-grade porcelain that are custom crafted to fit over the front surfaces of the teeth. At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Williston, porcelain veneers can be used to conceal aesthetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, and discoloration. They can also be used to conceal imperfections that affect both the appearance and health of the smile, including flaws in shape, size, length, and alignment. As such, porcelain veneers offer both cosmetic and oral health benefits.

The use of porcelain in dental veneers offers a multitude of benefits. When attached to the teeth with modern bonding materials, porcelain is remarkably strong and durable. It is also highly stain resistant, and can be crafted to complement surrounding teeth in terms of shape, size, color, and even texture. Because porcelain shares light reflecting properties with natural enamel, it is also the most realistic and natural looking of all dental restoration materials.

The Orthodontic Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Although porcelain veneers are not a suitable treatment in all cases, they often provide an excellent alternative to traditional orthodontic correctional methods for patients with minor spacing, alignment, and bite issues. By imposing a uniform length and closing gaps that separate the front teeth, porcelain veneers can strengthen and correct an uneven bite. They can also prevent teeth from drifting out of their optimal position toward excess space. Minor instances of crookedness can also be masked by varying the width of the veneer so that it evens out the surface of the tooth.

The chief advantage of instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers is that treatment is, indeed, instant. Rather than having to go through months of treatment wearing orthodontic appliances, suitable candidates can enter our office with orthodontic issues and leave with brand-new, healthy and radiant smiles. With proper maintenance, including regular dental visits, porcelain veneers can provide many years of improved oral health.

To determine whether you are a suitable candidate for instant orthodontics, we urge you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lauren J. Shanard at her Williston cosmetic and restorative dentistry practice today.
