If you’ve ever wondered why so many individuals in public life have such perfect smiles, you might be surprised to find out how many of them have had cosmetic dental work! One way that we can make your smile more attractive is to place porcelain laminate veneers or jacket crowns.
“Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent laminates made to improve esthetics (shape, spacing, color) of natural teeth, to correct crowding, or to replace composite bonding. If you already have crowns on your front teeth, replacement with all porcelain jacket crowns may give you a more natural, attractive appearance.
Extremely Lifelike and Hold Their Brilliance
Porcelain veneers and crowns are extremely lifelike and hold their brilliance, unlike bonding which often appears bulky or fake. Although porcelain is an extremely translucent material, it is also very strong. Porcelain veneers and crowns are permanent restorations, and they can be expected to last for many years.
“Porcelain jacket crowns and laminate veneers require two office visits. At the first appointment we remove any old bonding and prepare the teeth. We also take impressions and choose the shade and shape of the porcelain. When you leave the office, temporary bonding is used to cover the prepared teeth. Approximately one week later, the porcelain veneers or crowns are permanently bonded to your teeth.
