A common question I get from people are common detriment I think from people getting porcelain veneers is they say, "Oh, I've seen veneers and, oh, they look fake." And my response back to them is, "Well, of course you've seen the bad stuff because that's the stuff that looks unnatural."
Usually one of the big qualities of a veneer looking unnatural is a couple of reasons. Number one, they're too bulky. So you see these teeth coming into the room before the person enters, and that could be done because they were prepared wrong by the dentist or they were done by a poor lap. But awesome veneers should just look like an awesome smile, not veneers at all, and so you shouldn't be able to detect them.
So going back to what people in the consultation is, "Oh, I've seen veneers." Well, of course you have. You've seen the bad stuff because it just jumps out of you. It looks unnatural. So the goal of modern cosmetic dentistry is to replace and mimic nature as perfectly as possible. So we spend a lot of time making sure that we mimic that using master ceramist, using the latest techniques in creating veneers that blend with your face, so that it is not noticed and people say, "Wow, you have such an awesome smile."
