Porcelain veneers (sometimes called dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are very thin, customized porcelain shells specially designed to fit perfectly over a patient’s existing teeth. Porcelain veneers can hide a number of dental issues and are a great option for creating a beautiful, natural, long-lasting smile. At J. Hansen DDS, our experienced Roseville dental team specializes in creating custom veneers in-house to give patients a confident, picture-perfect smile that they can be proud of.
PORCELAIN VENEERS VS. MINIMAL PREP VENEERS
Traditional porcelain veneers can cover a variety of dental imperfections, including significant structural flaws. Preparation for these veneers can require minor to more extensive removal of the existing tooth structure. Once the existing tooth has been prepped, the durable veneer is bonded to the tooth, creating an instant, flawless appearance that will last for years to come.
For more minor imperfections, we also offer minimal prep veneers, which are faster and require little to no modification to the tooth structure. Check out our minimal prep veneers for more information on whether or not you would be a good candidate.
ADVANTAGES OF PORCELAIN VENEERS
There are a number of reasons to choose porcelain dental veneers to perfect your smile. Nicknamed “instant orthodontics,” veneers are an ideal way for many people to change the length, color, size, or shape of their teeth.
Porcelain veneers offer several advantages. They are durable, stain resistant, and can provide a whitening effect, even over dark teeth. In addition to looking like natural teeth, porcelain veneers are well tolerated by gum tissue. For these benefits, veneers are an ideal choice for many patients when compared to other, more invasive cosmetic treatments.
