Porcelain Laminate Veneers

Porcelain Laminate Veneers

Many times, the demands of cosmetic changes in the mouth are too great, porcelain laminate veneers may be used.  Porcelain veneers (sometimes referred to as laminates) can change an entire smile.  Porcelain laminate veneers are quick, painless, and dramatic.  They can change shape, color, size, and arrangement of teeth or any combination of these factors.  They can be used as an alternative for orthodontic treatment.  The best part about porcelain laminate veneers is that they can be placed in two visits.  The technique consists of first shaving a thin layer of outer tooth structure.  An impression is then taken of the prepared teeth and is sent to a dental laboratory.  In the lab, a ceramist will make very thin porcelain facings consisting of all the changes in shape, size, color and teeth arrangement that are needed to have a great looking smile.  At the second visit, the laminates are bonded onto the prepared teeth.  The bonding material acts as an adhesive for the laminates.  Porcelain laminates are the most popular technique used for dramatic smile makeovers.

Why is porcelain the best material for a veneer?
Porcelain has a translucency and lustre that cannot be equalled by any other material. It closely resembles the enamel of a tooth. 
Perfect colour matching to existing teeth is possible with a veneer. 
A porcelain veneer is a very strong and durable tooth restoration.
Although a veneer is very thin, it becomes as strong as the enamel of the tooth.
It cannot be stained and will not discolour. 
A porcelain veneer is very thin and as a result very little tooth material has to be trimmed away to accommodate it. 
How careful must I be with my new veneers?
Veneers are very strong and durable and cannot be damaged easily. 
Eating will not be affected, but it is not advisable to bite or chew hard sweets or chicken bones with the veneered teeth. 

These are not traditional 'caps.' They function and look like real teeth. In as short as two visits you can have a confident and beautiful smile.
