How to Make Your Smile Beautiful with Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to revamp the natural look of your teeth which are cracked, damaged or stained. The porcelain veneers provide strength and resilience that can be compared to natural tooth enamel.

These porcelain shells are usually bonded to the front of your teeth to change their length, size, shape or color for a better aesthetic appearance.

Close The Gaps Between Your Teeth

Teeth gaps are considered a sign of beauty in certain cultures, but some people opt to close their gaps because of personal preference. Some gaps in between the teeth should also not be left untreated, because they can cause teeth to shift and lead to a misaligned bite. Teeth gaps, when not properly taken care of, can also increase your risk of infection because food particles can easily get caught in them. There are many ways to fix a tooth gap, and one of them is through porcelain veneers. The veneers can cover existing teeth, fill in the gaps and effectively change the way your smile looks.

Maintain Your Beautiful Smile For A Long Time

Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, capable of lasting a up to 15 years with proper care. The material can resist chipping, cracking, and even staining. You can enjoy your favorite drinks, whether it’s tea, coffee, or wine, without staining. To keep your new smile in the best condition for years to come, just remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once daily. Schedule regular visits with your dentist every 6 months so they can also help you maintain your veneers and watch over your oral health.

What are the uses of veneers?

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Chipped or worn down teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • The Two Types of Veneers are:

Composite Resin Veneers

These types of veneers are usually placed on your teeth in a single appointment. Once your tooth has been reshaped suitably for the veneers, your dentist will then bond and shape the composite material to suit your teeth. A special light is then shone on the material to harden it after which the veneer is smoothened out to look like a natural tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a much more durable and long-lasting option as they can last from anywhere between 12-25 years. Your dentist will make an impression of your prepared teeth and send them to a laboratory to have them replicate the shape of your veneers.

Once the replica of your teeth has been made, your dentist can ask you to visit again to ensure that your veneers are a perfect match to the color and shape of your teeth. Dental cement is then used to bond the veneers to your teeth.
