Porcelain dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today – and for good reason. Veneers can be sized, shaped, and shaded to fit perfectly into your smile, and they can do all of this while addressing a wide range of cosmetic concerns.
Porcelain is stain-resistant. This is one of the reasons it's used for kitchen sinks and other household fixtures. Another is its durability. Porcelain is incredibly difficult to damage.
But what about porcelain used for dental veneers? Do porcelain veneers stay white?
Dental crowns and porcelain veneers offer several of the same benefits. As restorative dentistry procedures, they address the function of your teeth, but they also have cosmetic benefits, such as fixing tooth imperfections like chips, cracks, and discoloration.
