How do veneers work to restore the natural appearance of your tooth? The tooth is slightly etched to accept the veneers which are thin sheets of porcelain ceremic that are bonded to the teeth. They are also called porcelain laminates and will look like natural teeth without the imperfections! Although the porcelain is paper thin, it becomes very strong and durable when it is firmly bonded to the tooth structure.
Porcelain veneers are glass-like in nature (ceramic) and they are, therefore, translucent. This means that light will penetrate its surface, just like your natural enamel. This will give your tooth a lustrous appearance. This is a distinct advantage over other dental bonding materials, which may be semi-translucent. In addition, some dental bonding materials are susceptible to staining when exposed to tea, coffee, red win and tobacco. The surface of a porcelain veneer, however, is stain resistant!
