What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed onto the front portion of your teeth in order to enhance their color and shape. Porcelain veneers can drastically improve the aesthetics of your natural smile. Teeth often have imperfections such as being chipped, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, crooked, and have uneven surfaces. Porcelain Veneers cover these imperfections and aesthetically improve the tooth. With porcelain veneers you can mask tooth defects such as stains caused by tetracycline and cover visual defects that result from procedures like root-canal therapy. Additionally, veneers effectively correct discolored fillings found in the front of your mouth. Veneers also correct common spacing problems with patients teeth, such as a gap between the two front teeth. Many patients use Porcelain veneers as a method of “instant orthodontics”, where a patient can correct imperfections in their smile without having to wear metal braces or a retainer.
Realistic Shape and Feel
Porcelain veneers are an excellent replacement for composite bonding, and the process is less invasive than being fitted for crowns – porcelain simply covers the imperfections in your own smile. The procedure for implementing the porcelain veneers is remarkably simple. In fact, little anesthesia is needed and the veneers can be placed on the teeth in just one procedure. Veneers have longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding and are highly resistant to the permanent staining caused by coffee, tea, and cigarette smoking. Modern Veneers hold the translucence, color, shape, and durability of real teeth. Moreover, you take care of veneers by brushing normally and flossing so they do not require extra hygiene habits.
