How Veneers Can Transform Your Smile
Veneers can be one of the most effective ways to get the dazzling smile of your dreams. These tooth-colored porcelain shells cover your natural teeth and provide you with stain-resistant teeth that stay white and beautiful for years. Today’s veneers are made of a special translucent porcelain that reflects light much like natural enamel, and is strong and durable enough to last for many years.
Because the veneer is placed over the top of your natural tooth, they can be used to cover most types of imperfections, including discolorations, chips, worn enamel, stains, fractures, gaps, and uneven teeth. The enamel needs to be trimmed down slightly to keep the look and fit of your veneers attractive and comfortable. Usually, only a small amount of enamel is removed. Then, an impression is taken of your teeth so that the veneers can be custom-made to fit. At your next visit, the veneers are attached to your teeth with a special material.
Unlike natural teeth, veneers are stain resistant, so you can eat and drink everything you like without fear of staining. It is impossible to tell the difference between the translucent porcelain and the dental enamel, and the veneer can be made in shades that look just like your own teeth or in a lighter shade for a flattering look. You may be a candidate for veneers if you have healthy teeth and gums and you want a permanent solution for your smile flaws.
