Porcelain veneers, also sometimes called porcelain laminates, are an excellent way to achieve a beautiful smile. By working with your own natural teeth, porcelain veneers can greatly improve various aspects of your teeth including:
- Length of you teeth
It is the secret of a beautiful smile that is used by many movie stars and celebrities. Veneers require a minimal amount of tooth reduction, typically half a millimeter. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for teeth that are:
- Worn down
They can be even used to help fill gaps in between teeth (what dentists refer to as a diastema). Veneers are custom made from porcelain and bond directly to your own teeth. They are extremely strong and durable, often lasting more than a decade. Veneers will give you confidence in your smile because they have a natural tooth appearance. Since the porcelain transmits some light the veneers have a natural, esthetic look. No one will know that you were not born with a perfect set of teeth. Porcelain veneers resist stains that are caused by such things as coffee, red wine, soda, and even cigarette smoke. They are well tolerated by the gums, and they don’t require any special care. Reasons to consider veneers:
- Strong and stain resistant
- A natural life-like appearance
- Minimal tooth reduction required
- Easy to maintain
- You will have a beautiful smile
Your smile (and your self-esteem) will never be the same! In only two to three dentist visits you can have the smile that you have always wanted.
