Porcelain veneers are a very popular and widely-accepted treatment for an assortment of dental issues, such as darkened teeth, chipped teeth, gaps, and other similar problems. The results of this cosmetic dentistry treatment are relatively fast and always astonishing.
Stunning Smiles with Porcelain Veneers
Here at Midtown Dental in Sacramento, we use high-quality porcelain veneers that provide long-lasting results. Whether you have chipped or discolored teeth, porcelain veneers can transform your teeth and smile into a beautiful attribute of your appearance.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are a thin material that is placed and bonded to the front of your natural teeth. While there are different types of veneers, we at Midtown Dental prefer porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are made from pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that form a thin, yet durable porcelain shell. Porcelain veneers not only help restore your mouth’s natural bite and function, they also help whiten your overall smile.

Porcelain Veneers vs Lumineers
While both Veneers and Lumineers are attached to the surface of the tooth, they actually involve different procedures that offer different advantages.
Porcelain veneers require minimal reshaping of the tooth before being bonded. This makes porcelain veneers feel and look less bulky, while also contributing to a brighter smile than what is typically achievable with Lumineers.
Lumineers are placed on the front facing portion of the tooth without any reshaping. Since the tooth is not reshaped Lumineers have a tendency to look and feel bulky. The thinness of Lumineers also allows for discoloration to be visible through the actual Lumineer limiting the whitening effect on your overall smile.
Achieve Your Perfect Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be an excellent remedy for people who need to correct certain dental problems, such as:
- Chipped or Broken Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Cracked Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Worn-down Teeth
- Stain or Discolored Teeth
Not all porcelain veneers are the same, and in some cases, you should consider Lumineers as an alternative. Your Sacramento dentists at Midtown Dental can help you determine the best solution for your individual case.
