What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. In certain situations, they are an ideal choice for improving your smile and are quite popular due to their translucency and life-like aesthetics.
Performing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill and a great amount of attention to detail. Veneers are routinely placed at our Apopka office. We design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patients smile.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by a any other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain Veneers that are bonded to enamel are extremely stable for the long-term. The longevity of the restorations is highly dependent on being placed in the right application and occlusion (patient’s bite). In some instances, a full coverage crown may be the better solution. With proper diagnosis, Dr. Cohil can determine what the best option may be best for you. If dental veneers are for you, an ideal protocol for handling and bonding, as well as use of the best dental laboratories, will be selected and utilized to ensure that your restorations will brighten your smile, for well over a decade.
Because veneers are made of ceramics, one should refrain from using veneers to open or cut things. This will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, they can, almost always, be easily replaced.
