Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are, as the name suggests, made out of porcelain. Porcelain is a ceramic material that has been in use for thousands of years and is best known for its incredible beauty and remarkable strength. Although porcelain veneers are wafer thin, they are extremely strong and, when placed by an experienced dentist, and will produce a beautiful smile.
During your consultation, Dr. Whitmore will be happy to answer any questions you may have about porcelain veneers, including what they are, what the process is, as well as how long they last.
Why Use Porcelain?
Porcelain is widely used in dental restorations for a number of reasons. Porcelain is:
- Able to produce a seamless aesthetic by matching adjacent teeth in shape, size, and color
- Capable of reflecting light in the same manner as natural enamel
Although porcelain is used for many different restorations, your unique needs will be met for your particular wants and desires. Dr. Whitmore will be sure you are completely satisfied with the veneers prior to being placed on your teeth.
