Veneers with a dental mirror and black background

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin layers of porcelain material attached to the front of teeth to reduce the appearance of discoloration, fill in spaces, and cover teeth that are broken, crooked, or chipped. Compared to veneers made with composite resin, veneers made with porcelain are strong, durable, long-lasting, and resistant to stains. A study published in the Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences states that porcelain veneers have a survival rate of 94.4 percent after five years, while the survival rate of composite resin veneers after five years falls between 80 percent and 89 percent. Porcelain veneers are ideal for those who want to improve the overall appearance of their teeth and smile.

Teeth Whitening

Coffee, tea, and dark-pigmented fruits can lead to stained, discolored teeth that are difficult to whiten using conventional teeth-whitening products from the drugstore. Professional teeth whitening at Sarasota Dentistry is a safe, effective option for those who want brighter, more attractive smiles. Professional whitening also offers far less sensitivity. If sensitivity were to occur,  the professional whitening tray may be used to apply desensitizing agents to the teeth.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are strong, sturdy layers of porcelain used to strengthen and reinforce teeth that may be weakened due to cracks and chips. A porcelain crown covers the entire tooth without compromising functionality, comfort, or appearance, and is ideal for those who want to strengthen teeth and improve their smile. A full-arch or full-mouth of porcelain crowns can also restore a collapsed or crooked bite. Full-mouth rehabilitation with crowns can also stabilize the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) thus minimizing or eliminating jaw pain.

Porcelain Dental Fillings

Dental fillings made with porcelain are stronger and more durable than those made with resin. Porcelain dental fillings are also more efficient at resisting normal wear and tear. These white, durable, fillings also offer a better fit, since they are fabricated outside the mouth before being installed intra-orally. The Dental Board of California reports that porcelain fillings offer good resistance to future tooth decay, resist surface wear, and do not cause tooth sensitivity. Those who want to restore the functionality of teeth that have been damaged by trauma, injury, or decay can benefit from porcelain fillings.
