It is every person’s desire to have a beautiful and dazzling smile. Yet, imperfections like chips, cracks, misalignments, crookedness, heavy stains and breakages in teeth can be heavy drawbacks in achieving such a smile. This is where porcelain veneers enter the picture. Porcelain veneers are an ideal cosmetic dental procedure to correct all of the aforementioned issues while providing an amazing and beautiful smile.
Porcelain veneers are made of ceramic with a color very similar to natural teeth. They are essentially extremely thin laminates in the shape of fake fingernails that are bonded onto natural teeth to achieve the required correction and enhance the aesthetics of the smile. As a result of this thin nature, dentists are able to be very conservative with the preparation of natural teeth for porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are normally attached on to teeth through the use of special dental bonding glue or dental cement. Once the attachment of the veneer is solid, the strength of the bond keeps increasing and the risks of them coming loose and falling off are very rare. The porcelain veneers placement process typically involves two dental visits as the permanent veneers need to be prepared in a dental laboratory.
Porcelain veneers are regarded by dentists as the flagship procedure of cosmetic dentistry as they can dramatically and significantly improve the appearance of a person’s smile and provide a youthful look. In fact, it is thanks to porcelain veneers that many highly popular Hollywood stars have beautiful smiles.
