When you smile, the first thing that others notice is your teeth. The appearance of your teeth can play a major role in how you are perceived. Even the slightest imperfection can mar an otherwise beautiful smile, seriously deteriorating its quality. These imperfections can also affect your confidence, leading you to hide your smile from those around you. Having to constantly hide your teeth when you want to smile or laugh is no way to live your life. At the office of Joseph Dautremont, DDS, we can restore the appearance of your teeth with porcelain veneers.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells that look similar to shells. They are made to cover over the fronts of damaged teeth, effectively covering over minor imperfections and restoring the beauty to your smile. They can be used to correct some minor flaws in the teeth including:
Veneers are typically made from one of two materials, composite resin or porcelain. At Joseph Dautremont DDS, all of our veneers are made of porcelain. While both materials are white in color, matching the color of enamel, porcelain can be stained and finished to provide a perfect color match to your surrounding teeth. Porcelain also mimics the way that enamel reflects light, something composite resin cannot do. Along with these aesthetic benefits, porcelain is stronger than composite resin. It can withstand more use and has a longer lifespan.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
