Porcelain veneers are a very versatile dental procedure that can be used for a number of reasons. Many people use dental veneers to correct their smile in a cosmetic way such as to make their teeth look whiter. Many people do not know that porcelain veneers can be used to correct more serious issues as well.
Porcelain veneers are a thin shell of porcelain that are attached to the outside of your tooth. They can be made into any shape and any shade that you desire. During the procedure, a very thin layer of your tooth will be shaved away so that the veneer will look natural when placed on top of your tooth. The amount of enamel that is shaved away is extremely minimal and is usually not noticeable. Professional veneers almost always look 100% natural and offer an improved look.
Some teeth are stained to the point that teeth whitening cannot lift the stain. In this case, dental veneers are perfect. They can make your teeth appear whiter without harsh whitening treatments. Veneers can cover chipped teeth, and they can also fill small gaps in between teeth.
As we mentioned earlier, veneers are extremely versatile and can be used for almost any cosmetic purpose when it comes to your smile.
If you are concerned with the shape or shade of your teeth, then porcelain veneers are perfect for you. They are very easy to apply to teeth and are relatively cost-effective. The entire procedure can be done in as little as two visits to the dental office.
