Why Porcelain? 

Porcelain is a durable ceramic material that allows us to add realistic looking veneers. It reflects light, holds color, and contrasts with the skin in a similar fashion to real teeth. Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well, and porcelain is stain resistant.

A Simple Process

To ensure your new set of veneers look as natural as possible, Dr. Goodman removes a small layer of enamel from the tooth surface. This also allows the veneers to bond to the teeth more securely. Next, a bonding paste is applied to the prepared teeth. A light beam activates the paste and cements the veneers in place. The entirety of this process is completed over two appointments. Porcelain veneers are a simple and streamlined process, especially compared to other more invasive and extensive procedures. 

Veneers can help improve the aesthetics of your smile in multiple ways, including:

  • Resin Filling or Composite Bonding Discoloration - Over time, resin fillings may become stained along the line where the natural tooth meets the resin. This loss of seamlessness gives the filled tooth a worn, unnatural appearance. 
  • Worn Down Teeth - Teeth may appear smaller over time. This is because of erosion, grinding, and abrasion. 
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth - Veneers can quickly conceal damaged teeth, renewing uniformity.  
  • Irregular Shaping and Size - Teeth that are uneven or irregular in size and placement can be improved upon with the application of porcelain veneers 
  • Gaps – This cosmetic enhancement allows those with gaps or spaces between teeth to experience a full, and uniform smile.
