Make Your Smile Over with Porcelain Veneers By Jose Valenzuela on April 30, 2010

There are a number of ways to restore your teeth to their original luster and radiance. Zoom! ® teeth whitening, for instance, can brighten teeth up to ten shades in a mere hour-long treatment session. However, for some patients, teeth whitening is not an adequate solution to the aesthetic flaws affecting their smiles. For patients with severe discoloration, chips, gaps, and irregularities in the shape of their teeth, porcelain veneers may be the most effective way to make over their smiles.

Porcelain veneers are among the most natural-looking and durable treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They not only conceal aesthetic flaws, but they improve the bite by making the teeth perfectly uniform. As a result, many people refer to porcelain veneers as a form of “instant orthodontics.”

Why are porcelain veneers so natural looking? For one, porcelain comes closer than any other dental material to mimicking the properties of natural tooth enamel. Like natural enamel, porcelain is translucent; that is, it allows light to pass through its surface rather than reflecting it. Furthermore, porcelain veneers are laboratory-crafted to the exact specifications provided by the cosmetic dentist so that they perfectly complement the size, shape, color, and texture of surrounding natural teeth.

For teeth that are weakened by trauma or decay, dental crowns may be the best option from both a cosmetic and restorative standpoint. Some people opt to combine porcelain veneers and dental crowns as part of a comprehensive smile makeover.
