How To Get A Picture-Perfect Smile
Do you look at celebrities and stare enviously at their smiles, wishing yours looked the same? There is one cosmetic dentistry treatment that is often referred to as “the movie star treatment” because many celebrities and movie stars have received this procedure to improve their smiles. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is called porcelain veneers. Interested in learning more about how porcelain veneers can improve your smile? Read on to learn more.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your front teeth, which are visible when you speak or smile, porcelain veneers may be the perfect treatment for you. A veneer is a custom-made porcelain shell that is permanently bonded to the front of your tooth. Each veneer is custom designed in the color of your choosing. Patients love this treatment because it gives them a uniform yet natural-looking smile. Veneers can be used to improve imperfections such as:
- Permanent discoloration
- Chips, cracks, and bumps
- Oddly sized or shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Patients love veneers because they immediately cover any imperfections in their teeth. When cared for properly, they can last for many years. The only cleaning required is to simply brush and floss your teeth as usual. It is important to use a soft-bristled brush and not brush roughly so the veneers are not scratched. Dental veneers also resist staining. It is important to note that veneers cannot be whitened, so if you are looking for a brighter smile, we recommend using a whitening treatment before the veneers are placed.
