Are you considering a smile makeover with porcelain veneers from your Des Moines IA dentist, Dr. Jessica Johnson? If so, you probably want to make sure that the cosmetic results you get will look completely natural. Therefore, you will be happy to learn that many people consider porcelain veneers to boast the best results of any cosmetic treatment. They have achieved this status by the ways in which they mimic living teeth to create astounding levels of realism. For instance, our natural teeth are partially translucent, meaning they allow some light through them. Porcelain veneers mimic this quality and thus will look realistic in many different lighting conditions. In addition, porcelain veneers can replicate the reflective quality of teeth for a sheen that is very convincing.
