Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Although all of us are not so naturally endowed, through cosmetic dentistry a bright, beautiful smile can be fabricated and maintained.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material, which are bonded to the front of a tooth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia, and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers are placed to mask discolored teeth or change the appearance of teeth. The veneers are bonded to the teeth with very strong resin cement. One is able to control the color of the veneers or the shape of the teeth.

These veneers are highly resistant to staining. Porcelain veneers are a simple way to quickly change the shape, color, length or width of your teeth. They can be used to change the overall appearance of your smile or used on one or two teeth to correct a specific cosmetic problem. In addition to creating a pleasant smile, dental veneers can be used to protect the surface of a damaged tooth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes called instant orthodontics because they can be used to correct crooked teeth. In a very short time, your teeth can be as straight as if you had worn braces for two or three years. Once veneers are bonded into place, they are relatively strong and durable. This does not mean that the veneer-wearer can be abusive. The porcelain shells are thin and can damage or break if proper care is not given. They produce instant and spectacular results, however, and have several advantages even over dental crowns.

Porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size, or shape. Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.

Porcelain veneers have been one of the most used restorations for aesthetics. Aesthetics is a subject that is objective and necessitates a delicate combination of scientific principles and artistic abilities.
