Dallas, TX Veneers Dentist Discusses the Strengths of Porcelain Veneers

Written by Dr. Lin on Jan 21, 2014

Porcelain has become the first choice today for many cosmetic dentistry patients when choosing veneers at the Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentist Office. This material provides the the look and durability of dental enamel that create beautiful veneers. Porcelain 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. They 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, however, is that since they closely replicate natural dental enamel they’ll blend with your natural teeth.


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. 


Porcelain is often thought to be a fragile material but the team at our Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentistry knows that it is actually quite strong when used in dental applications. Porcelain 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.
