Why choose porcelain restorations?
Porcelain is the material preferred by dentists and patients for restoring and enhancing teeth, as it has similar properties to tooth enamel that give it a natural appearance and durability.
Your dentist can choose a shade of porcelain that perfectly matches your existing tooth colour, or you can choose a different shade if you want a whiter smile. Once fitted in your mouth, porcelain reflects light in the same way as natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell that your smile has been enhanced.
As well as its aesthetic benefits, porcelain is also very hard wearing, so porcelain veneers and inlays can last longer than composite veneers or fillings. Porcelain is also more resistant to stains and you won't have to give up so many of your favourite foods to avoid causing damage.
