Why is porcelain an ideal material?

Handcrafted porcelain can be shaped to fit directly over natural enamel, and is matched to your unique tooth shape for a very beautiful and authentic result. Porcelain veneers are only the thickness of a contact lens, but have great strength when bonded to teeth. Porcelain veneers, when placed correctly, are durable, lifelike, and reflect light as natural teeth do. Porcelain is an ideal choice for cosmetic dentistry improvements, and Rochester Advanced Dentistry would recommend nothing less.

Are veneered teeth as strong as natural teeth?

While porcelain alone is brittle, porcelain bonded to natural enamel creates a very strong tooth that can be used normally on all types of foods. And modern “porcelain” is only called “porcelain” because it’s a white ceramic. In truth, it’s an advanced material with amazing strength and durability that has more in common with tank armor than anything in your china cabinet.
