Six (6) Anterior Teeth Bonding

    Veneers OK with thin tooth enamel? I am 56 years of age.

    My teeth are in good shape and straight with only a small front gap (diastema) which doesn't worry me particularly.

    However the enamel is getting very thin and I have permanent staining as stains have got into the dentin. My teeth look old because of this.

    I am considering veneers. I would like to know if porcelain or Empress veneers are best for me. I have dismissed composite bonding as a solution as I believe wear and staining will come back. ...Visitor from London England UK

    You are correct that composite bonding can and will pick up various food and drink stains over the years.

    The most vital and natural looking porcelain for cosmetic smile makeovers is feldspathic porcelain. This type of porcelain has a natural warm beautiful brilliance to it.

    It does not create a fake - like appearance as do porcelain backed by metal crowns or other types of super thin porcelain laminates that depend on white opaque base layers to block out dark teeth.
