21 Mar How Stain Resistant are Porcelain Veneers?
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are generally regarded as the best procedure to produce a total smile overhaul. Concealing nearly every imaginable smile imperfection, porcelain veneers are worn by some of the world’s most famous entertainment and public figures. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are not just available to the rich and famous; your cosmetic dentist provides this one-of-a-kind smile makeover procedure, too.

Made from wafer-thin, handcrafted pieces of porcelain, these cosmetic enhancements are permanently bonded to the outer surfaces of teeth. Veneers are made from a variety of shades of white porcelain to produce a uniformly bright smile to suit an individual patient’s needs. Veneers also cover imperfections such as crooked teeth and gapped teeth along with concealing teeth damaged by chips and cracks. Once veneers are bonded to teeth, a patient enjoys a flawless and aesthetically pleasing smile free of noticeable imperfections. Not only do veneers produce a celebrity-worthy smile, they also appear natural and life-like.
Because veneers are crafted from porcelain, they are very resistant to staining. Your cosmetic dentist also polishes veneers with a special glaze to provide further protection. This glaze can be reapplied if veneers become dull over time. Along with porcelain’s light-reflecting properties, the glaze also promotes a natural appearance by giving your cosmetic enhancements a tooth-like luster.

During your consultation, our team will help you determine which procedure is right for your unique needs. If you and our dentist decide that veneers are right for you, impressions of your teeth will be taken to determine the exact shape and size each veneer should be.
