The Artistry and Science behind Porcelain Crowns & Veneers

Cosmetic and restorative dentists have many techniques that enable them to showcase their artistic talents. Two of these, porcelain crowns and veneers, are probably most common and are responsible for producing a Hollywood smile. While they have their similarities, they also have their differences. What is needed to enhance your smile will depend upon the condition of your teeth. In either case, the magic of porcelain is that in the right hands—between a gifted dentist and talented laboratory technician—you can achieve a look and strength so close to a natural tooth that only you and I will be able to tell the difference. And this good news only gets better as the latest science behind the newer ceramic materials looks even more promising!
