Porcelain Veneers at Long Beach Dental


A Veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth's surface to improve the look and appearance of the tooth as well as to protect a damaged surface. There are many different types of veneer surfaces including a composite or porcelain layer. By placing ceramic porcelain on the surface of teeth, dentists can provide patients with bright, straight, and natural looking smiles.

Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry because they provide a clean, bright white smile without unshapely or crooked teeth. Also, the translucent ceramic quality of today's veneers provides a more natural look, whereas in the past veneers were easily identifiable.

Veneers are a glass-looking, ceramic material that resembles closely what natural tooth enamel looks like. Just like actual tooth enamel, porcelain veneers can be slightly see thru, otherwise known as translucent. So when light hits a tooth's surface, the light is not reflected. Instead, some of the light penetrates into the enamel which then reflects off showing what lies just beneath the surface. For more information about porcelain veneers, give Long Beach Dental a call today.
