Recent advancements in dental technology have introduced a less intrusive method of correcting crooked, stained, and chipped teeth. Now with the introduction of porcelain veneers patients have more options in treating dental distortions.
Traditional methods of correcting dental distortions involved labor-intensive preparation for crowns where drilling and removal of irreplaceable tooth structure is need to prepare the tooth. With the development of porcelain veneers now patients are able to correct gaps, stains, and broken or misshapen teeth with a simple surface application of veneers.
New Methods with Veneers
Essentially, a porcelain veneer is an ultra-thin layer of porcelain applied to the surface of your teeth. Because porcelain veneers are designed to cover unsightly tooth distortions, there is no drilling, or discomfort associated with crowns. Wearers of Veneers can now have a beautiful even smile, with permanently white teeth, without the cost or discomfort of past dental procedures.
