Porcelain dental veneers are some of the most common and effective methods to treat cracked, chipped, or stained teeth. They are specifically molded to fit your tooth and tinted to color-match the surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers typically have extremely long-lasting results and can do wonders for the aesthetics of your teeth.
Both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are used to correct chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. However, in some circumstances dental bonding just isn’t enough, which makes porcelain veneers an excellent option. Unlike dental bonding, porcelain veneers also have the ability to quickly and easily straighten the appearance of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers, available at our Millburn, New Jersey practice, are thin shells of translucent porcelain, which are attached to the front of your teeth. When properly applied by an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Harold Pollack, porcelain veneers can produce a brighter, straighter, natural smile. One of the advantages of porcelain veneers is natural looking results. Because of the way the porcelain material reflects light, porcelain veneers create the same luster of natural teeth. Another advantage of porcelain veneers is their ability to resist stains. This characteristic of the veneers is very appealing to patients who drink coffee, tea, or red wine, as well as patients who smoke, since other material used in cosmetic dentistry procedures can become discolored over time.
Overall, patients who received porcelain dental veneers from our Millburn, New Jersey practice reported being extremely satisfied with the whiteness, shape, and feel that the porcelain veneers gave them – many even recommend porcelain veneers to their friends.
