Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain facings that affix to your teeth in a simple, comfortable procedure. You can whiten your teeth, close spaces, and create a winning smile easily and affordably. Veneers, which normally require a slight reduction of enamel, are bonded to the tooth to assure a permanent fix.
For decades dentists have been using materials which can create a durable bond to tooth enamel. The porcelain veneer technique utilizes these bonding materials to securely attach a thin sheet of porcelain to a damaged tooth. When porcelain is bonded to a tooth, it becomes very strong and durable. Porcelain replaces the worn or damaged tooth enamel, and the veneer is chemically bonded for strength and durability. Porcelain veneers are aesthetically pleasing, natural looking and durable. When they are bonded onto a tooth's surface they mimic the light handling characteristics of enamel.
Porcelain veneers not only improve the color, but they can also change the shape of the teeth. Some patients have teeth that are too short or have an unusual shape. The porcelain veneer can fill in indented tooth areas, lengthen teeth or balance the shape of the teeth.
Enamel that is thin or weak can be covered with porcelain veneers to protect the remaining tooth structure. Some patients never had solid enamel on their teeth due to early childhood illness or they inherited weak enamel from their parents. Porcelain veneers can be bonded over the enamel to add strength to the tooth. The tooth is strengthened, thickened and better protected with a porcelain veneer bonded to the weak but natural tooth structure.
Some dentist's patients have teeth that are sensitive to hot, cold or sweets. Tooth sensitivity is mainly due to the exposure of the tooth structure. Other dental patients cannot even take deep breaths in cold air, eat ice cream or drink cold water because of root exposure or thin tooth enamel. Root exposure is caused by gum recession and thin enamel may be genetic or caused by erosion. Whatever the reason for the root exposure, covering the root or covering the thin tooth enamel with porcelain veneers can greatly reduce tooth sensitivity while adding a new protective layer to the teeth.
