The appearance of a person’s smile is a very personal attribute that portrays a great deal about him or her. Often, many people do not understand the options available to them for improving the appearance of their smiles. Porcelain dental veneers provide a cosmetic approach to improving the esthetics of your smile with a natural appearance and comfortable solution.
Porcelain dental veneers are an ideal solution for many people who are unhappy with their teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain attached to the surface of the teeth and used to recreate the natural look of the smile, while also providing strength and longevity. Celebrities have been using dental veneers for decades to improve the look of their smiles and get them camera ready. And one of the great things about dental veneers is that you do not have to be famous or rich for this cosmetic solution to improve your smile.
Dental veneers are placed over the original tooth in order to recreate the look of a perfect smile. The process for having dental veneers is relatively simple, yet it requires permanent change to the natural teeth. In order for veneers to be placed, a small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. The amount removed is usually less than one millimeter, yet it will be permanent. This removal allows for there to be room for the porcelain veneer to accurately fit on the teeth so that the teeth appear completely natural. The veneers are bonded to the enamel with a special resin material that is activated by a special curing light. The bond between the original teeth and the veneers is extremely strong, and with proper care they can last for many years.
The most common issues that porcelain veneers are chosen to improve are:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Minor bite problems
- Poor tooth shape
