Porcelain Veneers Pittsburgh
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and because of their design and versatility have become increasingly popular.Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Dr. Supowitz places veneers routinely, and designs each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Will They Look Like Normal Teeth?
When bonded to teeth, the thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. Porcelain veneers are far superior to composite resin restorations (Direct Bonding) in regards to strength and appearance.
How Durable Are Porcelain Veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers can brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Supowitz will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Just as with natural teeth, you can prolong the life of your veneers if you avoid biting hard foods and substances (such as peanut brittle, ice, fingernails or pencils). However, if accidental breakage or damage does occur, it is usually possible to replace only the one veneer involved.
