Many people think about porcelain veneers and envision costly dental treatment available only to a lucky few. But times have changed! Technology and materials have now advanced to the point where veneers are a sensible option for many people who would like to do something about cosmetic dental flaws.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers, also referred to as dental veneers, are designed to cover imperfections that affect the overall appearance of the smile. Veneers are made of high-quality ceramic that is customized just for your smile by using impressions of your teeth.
These ultra-thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front surface of your teeth and can be shaped and designed to fit your unique specifications. Porcelain is the material of choice because it is durable, resists staining, and has many of the same characteristics as natural tooth enamel to provide that special sparkle.
Problems Veneers Can Correct
One reason why porcelain veneers are so popular is that they are highly versatile and can be used to correct many cosmetic dental flaws:
- Restore structure of a decayed tooth
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Conceal severely stained teeth
- Correct misshapen teeth
With diligent oral hygiene, proper care, and routine exams and cleaning appointments, veneers can last up to 20 years.
