Porcelain Veneers!

Porcelain Veneers
They are also called dental veneers or porcelain laminates. They are wafer thin porcelain shells that are attached to teeth to produce aesthetic improvement often along with a bite improvement. These veneers can straighten crooked teeth along with whitening them tremendously. If the teeth was yellow before, it won't be after having a veneer applied.
Veneers offer a quick way to improve the teeth's appearance. They are long lasting, natural appearing, and take a lot less time compared with other procedures.

How are they applied?
At the beginning, a cast of one's tooth is made. The veneer is manufactured from the cast and it is made out of porcelain. In order to make sure the veneer sticks to the tooth, the existing tooth is prepared with etching. This removes a little enamel. The veneer itself is prepared as well, and then a very strong adhesive is applied which glues down the veneer. One of the most important aspects to consider is which shade of white to go with.

What are the advantages?
Porcelain veneers provide teeth with a natural healthy look. One of the best benefits of the modern veneers is the glass like look with semi-transparency, which gives a natural appearance to them. As soon as the veneer is bonded to the tooth surface, it emulates the characteristics of native enamel. The porcelain is very resistant to staining due to the fact it is heat fired ceramic.
They may last from 10 to 50 years depending on the dentist's experience. They are not very porous, so teeth whitening doesn't work if there is staining. There is no adverse reaction with gum tissue. People who have slight tooth decay may utilize veneers instead of going all the way to a crown.
