This minimally invasive preservation of the strong enamel tooth structure provides for a longer-lasting restoration.
Porcelain veneers can be very thin (as thin as a fingernail), allowing for minimal or no tooth reduction, and, in some cases, may require no anesthesia. This minimally invasive preservation of the strong enamel tooth structure provides for a longer-lasting restoration. The semi-translucent veneer can be made to match the light-transmitting properties of natural teeth, and being metal-free, eliminates the hated “black” marginal line found around many traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Exquisite natural aesthetics are achieved with these restorations, most often used to close spaces, replace worn enamel, repair broken or chipped teeth, reshape crooked or misaligned teeth, and cover permanently stained or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers or onlays are also used on back teeth, and are our preferred conservative method to restore broken molar teeth or to replace large mercury silver fillings. Our porcelain veneers and onlays appear as natural teeth, totally invisible.
