enhancing natural beauty
With porcelain veneers.
This patient had bondings placed when she was younger, over the entire front surface of her teeth –– to correct mis-shapen teeth, and to close spaces between her undersized teeth. But bondings are a temporary solution because they break easily, pick up stains, and have a flat looking, unnatural color that worsens over time (bondings are unbleachable; only natural teeth can be whitened). Porcelain veneers were the best and most permanent solution because they never change color, they’re strong, and can be beautifully matched to existing teeth. Translucent porcelain shades look natural and beautiful because they reflect light like the enamel of natural teeth.
