Veneers allow you to correct cosmetic concerns without removing a lot of healthy tooth material.
They can be used to address a range of concerns, including:
Small gaps between teeth
Damaged enamel, as sometimes happens after removing braces
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or ceramic material that is custom built to fit your smile. To ensure they fit, only a very small amount of tooth enamel needs to be removed, no more than the width of a hair. Once this is done, impressions are taken to make sure your veneers will fit precisely with your teeth.
The Appeal of Porcelain Veneers
These popular cosmetic restorations look exactly similar to your natural teeth. You may notice that numerous celebrities have white, glistening smiles. Some of these smiles are supported by cosmetic restorations such as veneers. You may not even realize how frequent this is. They are one of the most popular treatments for masking undesirable features such as stains and discoloration. In addition, they help in correcting minor cases of tooth misalignment. This has led to some patients referring to them as “Instant Orthodontics”.
Applying veneers requires no invasive surgery or long-term corrections. It is one of the safest dental procedures available. Once the veneers are applied, they can be maintained with regular dental hygiene, and can last for years.
