Porcelain veneers are a permanent way to achieve a perfect looking smile. As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today, some of the world’s most notable people wear veneers. Celebrities like Tom Cruise and Miley Cyrus have benefitted from these cosmetic smile enhancements. Porcelain veneers are permanently cemented to teeth so that our patients can eat foods with confidence and enjoy their new smiles for years to come. Veneers are long lasting and durable. While the rich and famous enjoy star quality smiles, veneers are available to people in our community, too. In fact, our cosmetic dentist offers handcrafted veneers and has experience improving the aesthetics of a smile with various techniques.
What are porcelain veneers and how do they work?
Veneers are razor thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain. Handcrafted by dental technicians, veneers are used to conceal imperfect teeth. Each veneer is made to cover a specific tooth and when permanently cemented over flawed teeth, they produce a uniform and natural looking smile. With veneers, a patient can achieve a total smile makeover. Porcelain is a great material to use because it looks very much like natural teeth in its color and light-reflecting qualities.
Who benefits from veneers?
Anyone with dental imperfections can benefit from veneers. Most of the time, patients receiving veneers have multiple types of flaws such as stained, misshapen, and misaligned teeth. Some folks refer to veneers as “instant orthodontics” because after these cosmetic enhancements are bonded to teeth, patients’ smiles appear perfectly straight and proportionate.
How do I care for porcelain veneers?
Caring for veneers is easy. They are brushed and flossed like biological teeth. Although veneers are very resistant to staining, we recommend drinking dark beverages like wine or coffee through a straw to prevent any discoloration.
