An attractive smile has the power to unveil positive personality traits that may have been suppressed for years. An attractive smile also has the power to improve lifestyle, advance employment, increase income and strengthen personal relationships. In other words, an attractive smile can change a person’s life!
For many people, porcelain veneers can make that happen.
Veneers are thin, semi-translucent shells that can be permanently bonded to a front tooth or teeth. If your front teeth have spaces between them, are broken or chipped, have unattractive fillings, are stained or discoloured, or are crooked; porcelain veneers could be the best way for you to improve your smile.
Great changes have taken place in the technique and the use of porcelain veneers in recent years. These changes are the result of better porcelains being developed by dental researchers, together with major improvements in the ability to bond porcelain directly to the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a more conservative option than capping (crowns) which require trimming much more healthy tooth structure to create space for the crown material. Porcelain veneers often look more attractive and last longer than their predecessors (plastic veneers, or direct-bonded composite restorations. In short, porcelain veneers look very natural, are extremely durable, and maintain their colour.
A new, improved smile can be designed and put in place with just a few dental appointments. As a result of the advances in cosmetic dentistry, it is possible to correct disfigured and broken teeth and fill gaps and brighten smiles. Afterwards, maintenance on your part is simple; just floss and brush as you normally would.
Porcelain veneers can be one of the best ways to have a more attractive smile instantly! In fact, you might even think of porcelain veneers as a face lift for your teeth. When a photographer says “smile”, porcelain veneers can help your smile to be its picture perfect best.
Besides being one of the most conservative cosmetic procedures, porcelain veneers are very strong and they resist staining and cracking.
