Cosmetic dentistry has done a lot of good for many whose self-confidence is dampened by poor or defective teeth. These days when connections with people are essential for most any type of livelihood, the pressure to always make a good impression is great
What Are Porcelain Veneers For?
Wearing braces for a period of time has done great for many people but in cases when it’s not necessary or the defects are beyond the repair of braces, porcelain veneers may be able to help.
Porcelain veneers almost have the same light reflecting characteristics as a real tooth which makes it an excellent material for gaps. Cosmetic dentistry using porcelain veneers conceals these distracting defects and what you get is nice smile you won’t have any problem flashing.
Teeth, which are not perfectly aligned, can also be cosmetically remedied. Do you have some teeth that are oddly shorter than others? You will be surprised at how great your teeth would look once some of them have been cosmetically re-shaped. Braces can straighten crooked teeth and so can porcelain veneers, or at least it looks that way.
What Makes Porcelain Veneers A Great Material?
As mentioned earlier, porcelain veneers resemble real teeth very closely, they are hardly noticeable unless upon closer inspection.
Porcelain veneers are also stain resistant. Do you love strong coffee and wine? Don’t worry because what normally stains other filling materials won’t do the same damage to porcelain. It resists discoloration as well as glass.
Porcelain veneers can also be as thin as contact lenses so they can be attached to a tooth without making you feel uncomfortable. They last very long too. For as long as the tooth it is attached to remains in good shape, your porcelain veneers would be just fine.
The best part is cosmetic dentistry is a quicker and easier procedure that say, braces. If you want porcelain veneers, you may have to visit twice or three times and then you’re good to go.
During the first visit, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth, evaluate your teeth and come up with a plan to remedy them. For about one or two weeks, the dental lab will prepare your porcelain veneers. They will be affixed and bonded during your second visit.
Flash a great smile that boosts your confidence with porcelain veneers.
