Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, texture, size, and/or color, creating spectacular smiles permanently.
Porcelain veneers are the ideal standard in the state of contemporary art of cosmetic dentistry. They are the treatment of choice in the creation of perfect natural smiles because of its effectiveness, aesthetics and longevity.
Visiting CosDent and asking about Veneers is the first step in determining if veneers are the right option for you, or if there are alternate solutions available. We help you identifying what cosmetic improvements you want to accomplish.
After the appointment of diagnosis (assessment and planning), in just two sessions (two or three days), the treatment is completed, we accomplish this, because we made veneers in our own office, we have a modern dental laboratory in our facilities, which allows us to keep under strict control of all the steps for the preparation of veneers, guaranteeing us the best possible result.
Porcelain veneers are a very successful option in many situations where the original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are made individually for each patient, it is almost impossible to tell the difference between veneers and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, veneers resist stains from coffee and tea, and cigarette smoke, as they are highly polished surfaces, which repels anything.
With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
Maintaining porcelain veneers is actually quite simple: Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will typically be suggested by your dental professional.
