If you are wanting to cosmetically improve your smile while also preventing damage and decay, veneers may be a solution. At Cakmes Dental Studio, we offer two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells made in-house that cover the front-facing side of the tooth, whereas with composite veneers, resin is applied directly to the tooth in layers to create a desired look. While both forms of veneers greatly improve the appearance of your smile, they do differ. Composite resin veneers have significantly improved over the years, but if not cared for properly, may wear or stain more quickly than porcelain. Porcelain veneers are touted for their durability and ability to mimic the appearance and feel of natural teeth.
In our commitment to providing high-quality cosmetic dentistry services to our patients, we offer DURAthin porcelain veneers. As incredibly thin, custom-made pieces, DURAthin veneers eliminate the need to drill, grind or shave down the existing tooth. This advanced product allows us to give our patients a natural, beautiful smile, while preserving healthy tooth structures when needed.
In some instances, our team may recommend a combination of both types, depending on the state of your teeth. Our team will consult with you to discover which restoration process is most beneficial for your dental needs.
Veneers are often used to correct:
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Stained teeth
- Broken, chipped or damaged teeth
