Porcelain Veneers Perfecting Syracuse Smiles
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of tooth-colored, ceramic material that are bonded to teeth, usually on the front surface and sometimes along the biting edge. This procedure can be the ideal restorative choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Since porcelain veneers require much less tooth preparation than a crown, they are excellent alternatives to crowns if there is adequate natural tooth structure present. Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, and even smoking, the wafer-thin porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolorations, correct misalignments, repair fractured tooth structure, eliminate unsightly spacing between teeth, permanently brighten teeth, and to generally improve a smile. Porcelain veneers achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an esthetically-pleasing look that is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed. In order to achieve the very best clinical results that exceed everyone’s expectations, we feel that it is imperative that the initial diagnosis is comprehensive and treatment recommendations are thoroughly discussed between the doctor and the patient. In our office, Dr. Craybas will take pre-operative digital photographs and, through digital simulation, can show you what your teeth might look like when they are restored.
