Many people get cosmetic porcelain veneers as a way to correct the appearance of their teeth. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin and go over the top of your front teeth, creating a bright, white smile. One of the most common reasons people get porcelain veneers is to correct the appearance of stained or discoloured teeth. Cosmetic porcelain veneers are an effective and permanent way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile and your overall self-confidence. Porcelain veneers are not porous in the way that teeth are and therefore won’t stain nearly as easily. They are also usually coated with a stain resistant resin that will, again, keep them brighter and whiter longer than normal teeth. Over time, however, even porcelain veneers can stain or become discoloured. This can happen if the resin wears away with age, leaving the veneers vulnerable to staining. It’s important to take great care of your…

Can Porcelain Veneers Help Sensitive Teeth?

Sensitive teeth are not always painful, but they can make it uncomfortable to enjoy cold and hot meals and drinks. Tooth sensitivity arises when the porous, inner structure of your tooth—dentin—becomes exposed due to enamel wear, allowing heat and cold to access the nerves. Enamel wear is usually caused by poor dental hygiene and eating habits, which cause bacteria to accumulate around your teeth. The bacteria feed on sugars and starch in your mouth, converting them into acids that gradually wear down tooth enamel and expose the dentin. How to Treat Sensitive Teeth with Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers The only way to treat tooth sensitivity is by covering the exposed dentin, as with cosmetic porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the lip-side of your teeth to recreate the natural look of your teeth, and increase their structural strength and resilience. Besides addressing tooth sensitivity, porcelain veneers…
