A Porcelain Veneer is a thin shell of ceramic 0.2mm – 2mm in thickness that is bonded onto a tooth. This type of cosmetic dental service can cover part of or an entire tooth for functional as well as aesthetic reasons. When used on front teeth, Porcelain Veneers can be utilized to close gaps between teeth, change shape & color. Individuals whose teeth have been severely stained from medications like tetracycline, and whitening has not been effective, veneers can effectively cover and block stains. Veneers can also be used to restore chipped/broken teeth.
The following before and after photographs demonstrate results accomplished thru utilization of porcelain veneers, some of which cover only the front of a tooth and others which cover the entire tooth. Minor cosmetic recontouring of the gingiva has been also been performed. Contact your Pewaukee dentist, Dr. Hamedi at Healthy Smile Dental Care today to learn more about porcelain veneers.
