Thin pieces of porcelain that are utilized recreate or restore your teeth’s natural appearance are known as porcelain veneers. Veneers are comparable to the natural enamel of your teeth as they provide resilience and added strength. If you are looking to make alterations in the position of your teeth or change their color, shape, and/or size, porcelain is typically the material of choice.
A Closer Look At Porcelain Veneers
The experienced cosmetic dentists at Shine Dental Group in Syosset can conduct a smile analysis in order to evaluate the condition of your teeth and determine the proper procedure for restoring their appearance. It’s important to understand that porcelain veneers consist of an adhesive layer and several thin layers of ceramic material that is used in the replacement of the original enamel of your teeth. In order to apply these veneers, we must remove a very small amount of the original enamel.
This is an essential part of the procedure as it creates a sufficient amount of room for the fitting of the veneer within your mouth. Plus, this enables the restoration of the natural function of the teeth while creating an appearance that is better than what you had with your original teeth. Additionally, the bond that is created between the porcelain veneer and your teeth is critical to providing the aesthetics you are expecting to achieve with the process. It also builds a strong bond that is vital to the proper function of the veneer.
Consider The Many Benefits
One of the most significant benefits of porcelain veneers is how the procedure can solve a variety of dental problems such as cracked teeth, discolored teeth, gaps in between your teeth, and misaligned teeth. However, there is more to having the procedure performed than just the aesthetics of it. Porcelain veneers can improve the function of your teeth while at the same time protecting them by:
- Creating a proper, smooth bite arc
- Making shorter teeth proportionate to your other teeth
- Making your teeth symmetrical
- Splinting cracked teeth
In many instances, teeth that are cracked or weakened will never need to be replaced since these veneers serve as splints on stabilized teeth. Once they have been properly bonded, porcelain veneers become extremely durable, despite the thinness of the material being used in the procedure.
