Why is Porcelain Used in Veneers?

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

Porcelain is translucent, which allows our dental lab partners to shade it to match adjacent teeth in color. In addition, porcelain looks like tooth enamel – it even reflects light in the same manner – and feels completely natural. Because it offers a strong, natural-looking, and long-lasting restoration, porcelain is the obvious choice for dental veneers.

Caring for Your Veneers

Porcelain is incredibly similar in appearance to your natural tooth enamel, but once it is stained, your porcelain veneers will need to be replaced. Fortunately, porcelain is naturally stain-resistant and can be kept sparkling white by simply maintaining a good oral hygiene routine.   Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young will discuss how best to care for your porcelain veneers during your initial consultation.   If you live in Houston, The Woodlands, Kingwood, Spring, Conroe, or surrounding areas of Texas and would like more information about porcelain veneers, please contact Woodlands Premier Dentistry today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Scott Young.
