For patients interested in achieving the ultimate “Movie Star Smile” in the shortest amount of time possible, porcelain veneers are an excellent option.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored materials designed to cover the front surface of the teeth.
This technique allows the doctor to more effectively maintain the integrity of the tooth structure beneath. Porcelain veneers mimic the translucent properties of natural teeth, so the appear much more authentic than a traditional porcelain and metal crown. They can be used to treat a wide variety of dental and cosmetic concerns, including crowding, spacing, misalignment, irregularities in shape or length, discoloration, and worn or chipped teeth.
Only an experienced prosthodontist can expertly perform the procedures required to receive dental veneers. To find out if you are a candidate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Natour.
