Veneers

Veneers are a fantastic way to fix front teeth. You can whiten your teeth, close spaces, and create a great smile.

Veneers, alternatively termed dental veneers or dental porcelain laminetes, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to create a cosmetic improvement for a tooth. Veneers are approximately 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm in thickness but once bonded to your natural teeth become very strong and instantly change your smile. The veneer technique is an offshoot of the basic science of cosmetic dental bonding. Dentists have had materials available to them for decades that are capable of creating a tenacious bond with tooth enamel. Porcelain veneer technique utilizes the bonding capability of these materials to securely attach a thin shell of porcelain (the porcelain veneer) to a tooth. Although porcelain is inherently brittle, when it is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure (a tooth) it becomes very strong and durable.

What are the benefits of veneers?

Porcelain veneers applied over your natural teeth can easily brighten your smile and your self-esteem. The thin shell of porcelain fits over damaged, discolored, or misshaped teeth. They can mask undesirable defects such as tetracycline stains. Porcelain is an extremely durable material with a color, translucence and texture that is similar to tooth enamel. It is not susceptible to decay and resists staining while maintaining a natural appearance. Veneers can effectively close diastemas (gaps between teeth), lengthen and reshape teeth, repair chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, and cover stains and discolorations. What is more important, a minimal amount of the natural tooth must be altered to fit the veneer.

A few words about oral hygiene

Brush and floss regularly to prevent oral hygiene problems. Veneers generally can not be damaged by abrasion from your toothbrush or floss. Good oral hygiene will ensure your veneers stay strong and provide you with a long-lasting, attractive smile.
