Porcelain VeneersPorcelain Veneers are the premier, state-of-the-art restoration for the upper and lower front teeth. Whether we are replacing old discolored fillings or just improving the shape, color and overall smile, porcelain veneers are the conservative treatment choice with completely natural results.
The history of this material dates back to the 1970's and the NASA space program. Designing a process to bond the porcelain tiles to the space shuttles undercarriage so the heat upon re-entry would not burn up the shuttle. This technology was adapted to dentistry. The chemical bond between the tooth surface and porcelain are extremely strong and long-lasting and will not stain.
Porcelain veneers are very thin (1mm) shells of porcelain that are bonded directly to the tooth requiring minimal or sometimes no tooth reduction. The porcelain is semi-transparent like the natural enamel of your tooth and therefore has a completely natural appearance when bonded to the tooth without having to bury the margin of the restoration under the gums or without showing any dark shadow or line at the gumline.
This is the perfect choice to close spaces, lengthen worn teeth, brighten the entire smile, rebuild broken-down teeth and correct malalignment problems (instant orthodontics).
