When teeth are too damaged, misshapen, or discolored to be restored through a simple tooth whitening procedure, porcelain veneers are a valuable solution that can dramatically improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Porcelain veneers are one of cosmetic dentistry’s newer developments, featuring wafer-thin shells that are precisely bonded onto the front side of a tooth. You will notice the different in both the look and feel of your smile instantly. Porcelain veneers can change the shape, color, and size of your teeth, making them ideal for anyone who has teeth that are:
- Cracked or chipped
- Too large or too small
- Stained or discolored
- Contain small holes
- Have gaps between them

Porcelain veneers are becoming a popular alternative to braces since they can achieve the same look, but be completed in a few visits instead of a few years. Their translucency creates a realistic appearance, and when bonded to the steady structure of the tooth, porcelain’s natural brittleness becomes incredibly durable and strong. Porcelain veneers are also stain-resistant, meaning you can drink all the coffee and red wine you want without fearing the consequences.
Sacramento Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Miller uses three types of porcelain veneers:
Made from feldspathic porcelain, these veneers are the thinnest option available, and therefore more natural-looking than any other veneer on the market. Using feldspathic material, technicians can create veneers as thin as .4 millimeters. Their translucency reflects the underlying shade of your tooth.
A strong esthetic cement bonds these ceramic/porcelain shells to the front of your teeth, creating a natural look that won’t irritate your gums or change their appearance. Empress veneers both resist and improve staining, making teeth appear whiter, and they are created separately to complement each individual tooth.
MAC veneers are two to three times stronger than other dental veneers, using a state-of-the-art pressed ceramic porcelain that enables you to choose exactly how white you want your smile to be. Studies also show that these veneers tend to last longer and be more stain-resistant than feldspathic veneers.
Dr. Miller can help you decide which type of porcelain veneer would most benefit your specific condition. After just a few visits to his office, you can walk away with a brand new smile.
