Torrance Porcelain Veneers
They are thin wafers of porcelain, about half a millimeter thick, or about the thickness of a fingernail. They most commonly are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a new and revitalized smile makeover. They create a beautiful result. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as porcelain laminates. Properly used porcelain veneers mimics tooth structure better than any other restorative material. It is harder than enamel, so it resists wear and can last for many years. It resists stain better than tooth enamel. Very rarely will it discolor, unless the surface has been damaged. Torrance cosmetic dentists can manipulate the color and translucency to re-create the look of any tooth. It used to be that if your teeth were stained, chipped, uneven, oddly shaped, crooked or had gaps between them, your only choice was thick, white caps bonded to your teeth with adhesive.
Whitening works for many types of stains, but with porcelain veneers, or porcelain laminates, your Torrance cosmetic dentist has the ability to control the exact shade and shape of teeth. Porcelain dental veneers can also be used to narrow or close spaces between teeth, or even lengthen the teeth. Porcelain veneers are also used in place of braces and you can have your teeth straightened in a couple of appointments.
Look for a Torrance cosmetic dentist that has the proper education, (including ongoing education), training and experience placing porcelean teeth veneers to be sure that you get that smile makeover you want and need.
