Just like advancements in other fields have a tremendous impact, the dental field has seen amazing advancements in both technology and in the materials used. Such dental advancements allow our dentists to deliver unparalleled results with long-lasting effects due to improvements in the materials, as well as cutting-edge dental technology.
Advancements in ceramic veneers
One such critical advancement in the dental field is that of porcelain veneers, sometimes referred to as ceramic veneers. Back in the 1930s, porcelain veneers were attached to the tooth by using denture adhesive. As you may know, denture adhesive does not last very long, which meant that porcelain veneers back then didn’t last long either. Therefore, this was a problem and patients were not happy back then. Times have changed, though!
Another crucial advancement with porcelain veneers relates to its physical composition. Since the 1990s (approximately), ceramic has been used to create porcelain veneers. This is actually the reason why porcelain veneers today have stain-resistant qualities—ceramic simply does not stain, and therefore, your porcelain veneers don’t stain!
Amazing attributes of ceramic veneers
Additional attractive qualities of our ceramic veneers include:
- Painless and relatively quick procedure
- Effective solution for patients with crooked, chipped, or stained teeth
- Increased self-esteem and self-confidence once we place your veneers
- Flawless and natural-looking veneers smile
- Veneers are completely and individually customized to further enhance each patient’s natural, facial attributes. Such customization includes the color, size, and shape of your veneers
Furthermore, your porcelain veneers (ceramic veneers) are highly durable due to the long-lasting effects of the ceramic material, coupled with the high durability of the bonding cement used today. As a matter of fact, the ceramic veneers of our patients typically last between 12-20 years! Of course this depends on your oral hygiene and your eating habits, as well as your lifestyle choices.
