When you feel your smile is less than appealing due to imperfections in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can completely change the appearance of your smile in one visit.
For over a century, dental veneers have been used to enhance and change smiles making an otherwise unappealing smile look perfect. In the beginning, dental veneers were removable devices used by movie stars to create the iconic “Hollywood smile.” Advancements in dental technology and materials have created dental veneers that are permanent cosmetic transformations. People from all walks of life can now choose veneers to create their perfect smile.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers can mask a host of dental flaws. Short teeth can be made to appear longer. If you have small gaps between your teeth, veneers can close them. Individuals with misshapen teeth can appear to have perfectly shaped teeth with dental veneers. Small misalignments can be corrected with this procedure.
Some individuals have mottled or discolored teeth that do not respond to any type of teeth whitener. Fortunately, dental veneers can mask these discolorations and produce a uniform, natural look with whiter, brighter color.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are adhered onto the front of your natural teeth. In preparation for the veneers, a small amount of tooth enamel will need to be removed to allow the veneers to lie flat and be in alignment with the surrounding teeth. Sometimes reshaping may be required to achieve the look you want.
Veneers are permanent, and they last for years. It is important to note that they may need to be replaced at some time in the future. Therefore, it is wise to consider that additional cost for replacement veneers may be incurred at a later date.
Invest in Your Smile
When you can be proud of your smile, you have more self-confidence and self-esteem. When you can smile with confidence and pride, you may find yourself smiling more often. Investing in porcelain veneers requires thought and commitment because it is a permanent solution to address the imperfections in your teeth.
