Porcelain veneers are an easy and comfortable way to update your smile, especially if your teeth are uneven, discolored, chipped or broken. Porcelain veneers often last for several years and are easy to care for — and they give you a smile you’ll be proud of!
What are Dental Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers used by dentists are very thin shells of porcelain that cover the front of each tooth.
Think of it this way. Veneers are used in cabinetry and woodworking to create a more attractive appearance. Carpenters glue thin sheets of wood onto furniture to even out the surface, enhance the color, or cover imperfections.
In much the same way, our San Mateo cosmetic dentist uses porcelain veneers to cover the surface of teeth. The veneers are wafer-thin ceramic and may seem fragile, but dental ceramic veneers are ultra-strong, durable, and protective — and can change the color, shape, size and length of teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Besides brightening smiles, there are many other benefits to dental porcelain veneers. They appear completely natural and are well-tolerated by gum tissue. Just as important, though, veneers are stain-resistant and give added strength to natural teeth that may be worn, damaged or decaying. The procedure is simpler and less invasive than dental crowns or implants.
Are You Ready to Take the Next Step?
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael Wong at our cosmetic dentistry office in San Mateo. He’ll listen to your needs and assess your teeth to see if porcelain veneers are the best option to improve your smile.
He’ll also take into account the shape of your face and complexion to design veneers that are as unique as you are. Since the veneers are fitted directly over your teeth, Dr. Wong will take precise measurements to ensure a perfect fit and the perfect color.
