Porcelain Veneers Provide Natural-Looking Results
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way for County Dental at Poughkeepsie patients to repair chipped, broken, or severely discolored teeth, as well as minor misalignments and gaps. The veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that affixes to the front of a tooth to cover its flaws. Porcelain veneers can change the shapes of teeth with natural-looking results. The restorative process can also be used to correct severely stained teeth by giving them new, white surfaces matched by shade to complement surrounding teeth.
Natural teeth have a glossy sheen because of the layer of enamel encasing the dentin of the tooth. Because they are made of porcelain, veneers can be accurately color-matched to the teeth surrounding them so that they blend into a smile inconspicuously.
Patients receive long-lasting benefits from porcelain veneers because the product does not absorb stains at the level of other substances. Patients may also consider combining veneers with other treatments such as Zoom!® teeth whitening or tooth-colored fillings for a total smile makeover.
