Can Porcelain Veneers Replace Small Teeth?
Dr. Sam Muslin Answers: When someone asks if porcelain veneers can replace small teeth they may not understand their own question. Porcelain veneers do not replace the teeth; veneers are bonded to the small teeth to make small teeth look larger.
The wonderful technique of dental bonding porcelain to tooth enamel is very strong. The bond strength is stronger when the dentist does not grind down the patients tooth. The strongest bonds are when the porcelain veneer is bonded to the tooth enamel rather than the dentin.
If the patient only has a few small teeth, then just a few porcelain restorations work best, but if all of the patient’s teeth are small, then Dr. Muslin’s non-invasive Face Lift Dentistry® is the best treatment choice.
