Attractive and Durable, Too
Porcelain veneers are called “porcelain” because of their white color, which can be subtly adjusted to match your natural teeth. They also have a natural tooth luster that means they are very hard to distinguish from your natural teeth.
These porcelain restorations are made of a highly durable advanced composite material. In studies, more than 95% of porcelain veneers are in place after 10 years, and up to 85% in place after 20 years. Porcelain veneers have limitations, but when properly used and cared for, they are among the most successful cosmetic dentistry treatments available.
Lumineers: Ultra-Thin Veneers Gently Transform Your Smile
In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, Dr. Siegel will evaluate your case and determine if Lumineers may be appropriate. Lumineers take a different approach to restoring your teeth. Traditional veneers are used to replace the front surface of your teeth, but Lumineers are simply bonded to the front of your teeth. The benefit of this is that they do not require preparation of your teeth, making them completely reversible, but it does limit the cases in which they are useful.
Both Lumineers and porcelain veneers are used to change the shape, color, size and spacing of your teeth. Meticulous measurements and photographs are used to evaluate your needs and determine what will be necessary to create a radiant smile for you.
Dr. Siegel blends precision dentistry, advanced technology and an eye for artistic detail. Meticulous measurements and photographs are used to evaluate your smile needs and determine what will be necessary to create a beautiful, natural smile for you.
BioClear Porcelain Veneers Alternative
If you are unhappy with black triangles that have formed around the base of your teeth, porcelain veneers might not be the optimal solution. Porcelain veneers would require the removal of more tooth material than we might want in this situation, and they are expensive. BioClear is a better alternative for this situation.
BioClear is a flowable dental bonding solution that allows the bonding to flow around the base of the tooth, effectively filling in the gap. With no need to remove tooth material and a much more attractive price, BioClear is rapidly growing in popularity for fixing black triangles.
