Sometimes referred to as dental veneers, porcelain veneers are essentially porcelain laminates that are wafer thin and custom-made for each individual patient.
In most cases porcelain veneers are made from high quality porcelain or from some type of resin composite material that is very similar to porcelain. Porcelain type veneers are typically the best choice in terms of material because of their ability to resist staining. That said resin veneers are considered a better choice when it comes to perfectly mimicking the properties of natural teeth in their ability to reflect light. Talking with your dentist is the best way to know for sure what type of veneers will suit your dental needs the best. Porcelain veneers are used to repair teeth that have become worn down, chipped or broken.
They can also be used to restore teeth that are misaligned, uneven or shaped irregularly. In addition, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice when it comes to fixing teeth that have excessive gaps or teeth that are discolored. For example, root canal treatment can cause a tooth to change color resulting in a noticeable change in the tooth. With porcelain veneers, this problem is solved quite easily.
