Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental to solution to improving the appearance of your teeth. They are hand crafted, often wafer thin and cover the front surface of the tooth, and they are used to rectify many defects and irregularities. A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain applied to the front surface of your tooth to improve its' appearance and disguise the irregularities underneath. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Veneers are used to treat some of the same problems as composite bonding. The chief benefits are the material’s attractiveness, sturdiness and suppleness. Since porcelain is stain free unlike composite resin, its appeal lasts longer. What's more, gum tissue accepts porcelain quite well, hence lessening the chances of the development of gum-related problems.

Porcelain veneers require more than one visit because they are fabricated in a laboratory. Keep in mind that veneers will need to be replaced at some point, no matter how well you take care of them. But proper oral hygiene will help them last as long as possible.

If you're deciding on veneers, consult with your dentist and be sure you understand every part of the process and cost. A beautiful smile feels great and can increase both your confidence and well-being.
