One of the most natural-looking cosmetic enhancements your dentist can offer is porcelain veneers. Often, the gorgeous smiles you see on movie stars and models were created with a little help from porcelain veneers. With natural-looking results, no one will ever guess that you have had aesthetic dental work.
In just a few appointments, porcelain veneers can give you a stunning, new image. The following details will give you more information about dental veneers.
Veneers can change various aspects of your smile.
Made from fine dental porcelain, the veneers will cover front teeth to improve size, color, shape, and overall appearance. With traditional veneers, a skilled ceramist will handcraft each custom veneer according to the dentist’s exact specifications.
Veneers are designed to last.
After placement, your restorations will provide years of beauty, if you take proper care of the veneers. Brush often, floss regularly, and see your dentist every six months to protect this investment.
Dental veneers are not false teeth.
These thin shells of porcelain are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth, permanently covering imperfections like gaps, stains, or crooked teeth. For placement of traditional veneers, your dentist will remove a layer of enamel in preparation for the restorations.
Minimal-prep veneers are also a choice.
Depending on your case, the dentist may suggest minimal-prep veneers. These contact-like wafers can be placed without enamel removal, which means you can reverse them at a later point. Because they can look bulky or unnatural, talk with your dentist before choosing minimal-prep veneers.
