Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are ultra thin, translucent shells of fine dental porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of teeth.
Porcelain veneers can correct a number of functional and aesthetic concerns including:
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
Advances in material and technology make today’s porcelain veneers look and feel more like natural teeth. The dental porcelain that is used to create these cosmetic restorations is very fine and reflects the light just as natural tooth enamel.
Jacksonville cosmetic dentist, Dr. Alexander takes a very conservative approach to preparing the teeth for porcelain veneers, leaving as much of the natural tooth as possible. With our CEREC technology, we are able to produce many of our porcelain veneers in our Jacksonville office, while the patient waits. This advanced technology saves the patient from the uncomfortable temporaries and multiple visits that are normally needed to complete the procedure.
Maintaining an oral health routine that includes professional cleanings is important to the long term success of your porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains from food and drink so you can be sure your smile will remain youthful and bright.
