San Jose Dentist Dr. Shimizu Can Fix Your Stained, Chipped, or Crooked Teeth With Porcelain Dental Veneers. By placing a ceramic porcelain dental veneer on the surface of your teeth, Dr. Shimizu can give you a brighter, straighter, and more natural looking smile. This glass-like ceramic closely resembles natural tooth enamel because porcelain veneers are translucent. When light strikes a natural tooth’s surface, it is not immediately reflected off but instead, penetrates the tooth enamel and reflects off the opaque tooth dentin that lies just beneath. This translucent effect is what gives teeth their luster.
Benefits of Porcelain Dental Veneers Porcelain veneers can fix worn enamel issues, chipped or broken teeth, misaligned teeth, and have functional benefits in addition to these aesthetic benefits. They protect the surface of the teeth that have been damaged and in some cases can eliminate the need for more extensive dental treatment like dental crowns or root canals.
Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, discolored, or if you’d like to change the size and shape of your teeth, San Jose porcelain veneers may be right for you. Give our office a call at 408.923.5511 or email us at Info@BerryessaDental.com.
