Porcelain Veneers Can Be Instant Orthodontics

Cosmetic Dentistry
Porcelain veneers can be instant orthodontics. San Diego cosmetic dentist explains that porcelain veneers are as strong as a natural tooth and can drastically improve your smile in a very short time. The glass-like ceramic that forms a porcelain veneer closely resembles natural tooth enamel. This is because, much like real tooth enamel, a porcelain veneer is translucent. When light strikes a natural tooth’s surface, it is not immediately reflected off. Instead, it penetrates the tooth enamel and reflects off the opaque tooth dentin that lies just beneath. This translucent effect is what gives teeth [...]

Dental Restorations
When the biting surface of the back tooth needs a restoration, the best choice is often an inlay or onlay made of resin.

An onlay also covers one or more cusps of the tooth. Both kinds of restorations are precision crafted in a dental laboratory, so it may take one or more appointments to restore your tooth with a resin [...]
