Dental Porcelain Laminates
Porcelain veneers (aka Teeth Veneers) should look natural and if the junction of the natural tooth and porcelain veneers is perfect, the gums will fit tight to the veneer to achieve the perfect smile.
Dental porcelain laminates are also known as porcelain veneers or teeth veneers. They are thin shells of porcelain that are custom made to fit your teeth. Some cosmetic dentists only offer porcelain veneers that require a lot of tooth grinding. Other cosmetic dentists only offer one brand of porcelain veneers. If you are considering porcelain veneers, before you go to the cosmetic dentist, try to determine your goals. As an example:
No Grinding Porcelain Veneers
No grinding porcelain veneers to close the gaps between his teeth and widen his smile. His teeth and the size of his head are now more proportionally matched.
The most marketed name for a no grinding porcelain veneer is the Lumineers ™ brand. You can have whiter, longer, straighter and younger looking teeth with porcelain veneers. It will naturally depend on what is best for you. Most of Dr. Sam Muslin's patients get their porcelain veneers without having their teeth ground down which is considered as the best cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Muslin says, “Why sacrifice your healthy teeth for porcelain veneers unnecessarily”?
Porcelain Veneers for Tetracycline Stained Teeth
Do you have tetracycline stained teeth and want to hide the color? Some porcelain veneers are very good at hiding color and other types of porcelain veneers are very strong and hold up better in patients that have teeth clenching and grinding. The most important element of a porcelain veneer is the skill and talent of your dentist. Your dentist will bond the porcelain veneers, or dental porcelain laminates, to your teeth. The purpose of this site is for the patient to see the wide variety of smiles and bite corrections that are possible using non-invasive dentistry.
Not all porcelain is the same!
As the cosmetic dental industry grows there are methods that offer a wide variety of porcelain veneers. The porcelain can be pressed as with the E-Max method, the Empress Technique or the G3 Porcelain, or ground into shape as with the Cerec CAD/CAM Porcelain Technique.
A porcelain core can be made using the Procera Technique or the Lava Technique. There are many ways to construct porcelain veneers and the best cosmetic dentist can make all of them look natural. That is why your dentist plays such an important role and needs to know all of the porcelain brands. Dr. Sam Muslin, who uses porcelain laminates extensively in his Facelift Dentistry ® treatment, prefers a porcelain technique which is in his opinion the most natural, long lasting, best looking and least bulky. (He will not say anything bad about the other techniques in this website.)

The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can add a new layer to the surface of your teeth by making them smooth and stain free again. Porcelain veneers can make crooked teeth look perfectly straight in one to two weeks. They can make short teeth longer, old yellow teeth whiter and younger looking, and thin yellow teeth much thicker and stronger. With porcelain veneers you won't need BriteSmile, Zoom, Crest Strips or any of the chemicals for teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers can preserve your teeth and make them less sensitive to hot and cold. Many of his patients appreciate teeth that are less sensitive with his desensitizing method he uses before bonding the porcelain veneer to the teeth.
Are Porcelain Veneers safe?
Porcelain Veneers, sometimes referred to as Teeth Veneers, are biologically compatible and do not interact with the body. They are strong and if bonded well will not fall off. They can last 10 to 30 years or more without any special care. They chew and feel like natural teeth.

How Long will Porcelain Veneers last?
Dr. Sam Muslin's father has had them for approximately 26 years. At 88, he still had nice natural looking teeth that appeared healthy and strong. The porcelain veneers protected his teeth and his appearance was better the entire time he had them. He presented himself as a more healthy vibrant person with every person he met.
