Porcelain veneers are often used to treat teeth with minor damage such as cracks or chips, as well as to provide symmetry to misshaped or unevenly spaced teeth. But porcelain veneers can also be used to treat deep teeth stains and restore a bright smile.
Just how vibrant your rejuvenated smile is depends largely on your aesthetic desires, because porcelain veneers can be custom tinted. Santa Monica cosmetic dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf will help you select a porcelain veneers shade that will give you a white, uniform, natural-looking smile.
Every porcelain veneer is individually crafted for your unique needs and cosmetic goals. That level of individuality spans from the overall form of each porcelain veneer to the whiteness of the veneer.
Among the benefits of using porcelain in dental veneers are that it is durable when bonded to the surface of your natural teeth, it feels and performs like your natural teeth, and it looks like your natural teeth. Porcelain has a translucent nature similar to your teeth, and it can also be tinted to varying levels of brightness for a dazzling smile.
