The way that porcelain deals with light, makes it look like tooth enamel. When a ray of light shines on natural tooth, it passes through the enamel which is translucent and it reflects from the next tooth layer known as dentin. Dentin has a darker yellowish color. That pearly sheen, which our teeth enjoy, is a consequence of this absorption and reflection of light. So it’s not really surprising why porcelain is a commonly used material in cosmetic dentistry and is also very popular for its use in veneers.
Just like glass, dental porcelain also resists staining. So if you like to enjoy red wine at dinner every single night or your mornings are incomplete without a couple of cups of strong coffee, then you can relax about the porcelain in your mouth. Such staining substances may only affect porcelain scarcely over the years. Typically the porcelain veneers will last for the same length of time as the tooth with which it is attached. Your new and more attractive smile don’t have to worry about porcelain losing its color, as maintaining the shiny white looks is not a problem for porcelain.
