What are porcelain veneers made from?
Porcelain veneers are made from a high-quality ceramic material. Ultra-thin, the ceramic shells are created using the exact specifications and color-matching that we provide to the dental lab for a customized result. The material reflects light like natural tooth enamel, allowing your new veneers to blend with your smile and look as if they have always been there. Porcelain is also highly durable and stain resistant, important qualities in the creation of a lasting new smile that will feel and function like natural teeth.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent restoration because of the amount of tooth enamel that is removed for placement. With proper care, your veneers can last for many years, and we can replace a damaged veneer when necessary to maintain the look of your smile.
