Porcelain Veneers – For Smile Perfection
Crooked, gapped, uneven and permanently stained teeth can be beautifully repaired with natural looking porcelain veneers. Versatile and strong, porcelain veneers resist staining from coffee, tea, wine and cigarette smoke, creating an enduringly white, straight smile, the kind of smile that takes years off your appearance! With your help and input, Dr. Fitch can custom design your smile. Together, you decide the shape, color, and size of your teeth to create a sensational smile that looks so natural no one would doubt they were your own teeth. We always take into consideration what makes you unique – your personality, your gender, your height, and your own particular coloration.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of ceramic material that can be chemically bonded to the tooth structure, and are the primary treatment modality for the extreme makeover shows. To apply a veneer, a very small layer of the original tooth enamel is removed and then the porcelain veneer is bonded to the tooth with a light-sensitive resin. The bonding strength between a customized porcelain veneer and the tooth surface is tremendous, and after bonding, porcelain veneer materials display similar physical properties as natural enamel. Another benefit is that with veneers, your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered as opposed to crowns. In addition, with the advance of ceramic technology, the translucency of natural teeth can be perfectly mimicked.
