Porcelain VeneersAn Overview
Porcelain veneers are typically used to eliminate unwanted imperfections in smiles, such as gaps, stains, chips, or misshapen teeth. But they can also provide a beautiful new smile after tooth damage or wear as a result of a bite disorder. They are made from ultra thin, high quality ceramic materials and permanently bonded to the tooth’s surface – creating a natural look patients can be proud of for years to come.
What are porcelain veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a very thin shell that covers the front and sides of a tooth. This shell is permanently bonded into place and will cover up any cosmetic blemish. Porcelain is very similar in appearance to a real tooth so the veneers will look natural. If shaped and installed correctly, they should feel completely natural in your mouth. You won’t even notice them when you are talking or eating. A dental veneer is a permanent, irreversible dental restoration that is highly stain resistant. They eliminate the worry of your teeth turning yellow over time.
The high quality ceramic used for porcelain veneers is durable and more stain resistant than natural tooth enamel. They will be custom color matched to blend with your existing teeth and overall appearance.
For more than 20 years, Annapolis cosmetic dentist Dr. Vernon Sheen has been using porcelain veneers to improve the beauty and health of patients’ smiles. He uses them to correct and address many issues including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- The appearance of misaligned or crooked teeth
- The shape or length of teeth
- Stained, discolored, or yellow teeth
- Aging teeth that have worn down
