Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentist Provides Porcelain Veneers Information

Written by Dr. Lin on Sep 30, 2014

Porcelain veneers are quickly gaining popularity as a treatment that can produce beautiful smile makeovers. Patients at our Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentist office choose veneers because they provide the look and durability of natural dental enamel. 

Uses for Porcelain Veneers

Veneers offer a solution for a wide array of cosmetic problems, and they can literally transform a smile in a few appointments. Some of the more common cosmetic dental issues that Porcelain Veneers resolve:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Cracked/chipped dental enamel
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Dark or stained enamel
  • Pitted/grooved teeth 

If you are affected by any of the above cosmetic issues, porcelain veneers can be successfully used to treat the problem and many others, and may be the solution for you. 

Why Choose Veneers?

Today there are many cosmetic options available and patients want more information. You may question why choosing veneers rather than another procedure makes sense.

The reality is that you should weigh all of your possible choices and then work with your dentist to make the decision that is right for your specific situation. The main advantage of porcelain veneers is that since they closely replicate natural dental enamel they’ll blend with your natural teeth.

Natural Appearance 

Porcelain reflects and absorbs light in a manner similar to that of natural enamel and is used for a number of cosmetic solutions. It can be shaped and shaded to fit your natural tooth coloring and is highly resistant to staining because of its smooth glasslike finish. That same quality keeps them from looking dull or flat, helping them retain their white, bright appearance for years. 

Strength and Durability

Porcelain is often thought to be a fragile material but the team at our Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentist knows that it is actually quite strong when used in dental applications. Veneers don’t put unneeded stress on neighboring teeth so patients can chew normally and follow their usual routine of oral hygiene. Porcelain is an ideal material for dental restorations that is popular with dentists and patients alike and will keep you smiling for many years to come.
