What are teeth veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded directly to the front surface of your teeth. This conservative treatment is a popular cosmetic solution for improving the appearance of your teeth and giving you the smile you have always wanted.
Reasons to Consider Dental Veneers
- Corrects misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth
- Restores eroded or misshapen teeth
- Whitens stained or discolored teeth
- Fixes chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
- Creates a beautiful smile that looks totally natural
Will dental veneers look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable. Placing custom teeth veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to detail so that the veneers appear as natural as the surrounding teeth. Our skilled Rochester, NY, dentist, Dr. Aaron Park, will meticulously apply dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Each veneer is customized to match and enhance each individual’s smiles.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care and upkeep, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile and last for 15 years or longer.
Your dental veneers will be made from the highest quality porcelain, and bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. Therefore, your porcelain veneers will be as durable as your natural teeth. As with real teeth, you still should not use your veneers as a tool to open bottle caps, pocket knives, packages, or cut nylon fishing lines. But, you should be able to eat normal foods like apples, carrots, and hard breads. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. Of course, accidental breakage or damage can occur, and it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
