Veneers offer a permanent concealment to cracks, stains and several other common cosmetic dental flaws. While composite veneers are also available, porcelain veneers remain the most popular option. Here is a look at the advantages of this treatment from our San Francisco cosmetic dentist.
Since porcelain veneers cover the entire fronts of the teeth, they can rejuvenate a smile completely. In fact, this treatment is ideal when the teeth bear more than one type of imperfection at once. Cracks, chips, bad shape, gaps and stains, both external and internal, can be hidden in a single swoop using veneers.
Porcelain outshines composite in terms of durability, as well as their resistance to stains. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for more than 20 years. The lack of pores in porcelain means that pigments cannot settle there, so the smiles of recipients remain pristine. Many patients have their whole smile covered with porcelain veneers for a uniformly low-maintenance, flawless smile.
Every porcelain veneer is custom-made and crafted for the individual receiving it. After two visits for preparation and placement, veneers recipients can count on keeping a brilliant smile for many years to come. Patients can schedule a consultation with our expert in porcelain veneers in San Francisco to learn more about this treatment and its benefits.
