It is very easy for teeth to become chipped, damaged, stained, or out of place. These problems may not be serious, but the could change the look of your teeth. You may think your smile is not as beautiful due to one of these issues. Porcelain veneers can be applied professionally by your dentist and can fix all of these problems.
A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over the surface of the tooth. It is used to either improve the look of the tooth or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Porcelain veneers have been growing in popularity. A porcelain veneer is created by a technician in a lab and later bonded to the surface of the tooth using dental cement.
Veneers were first used in California. They were bonded to the teeth by denture adhesive and fell off very quickly. At the time, they were only really used by actors in order to change the appearance of teeth for a short amount of time. An actor would wear the veneers for a shoot and then remove them.
Today, veneers are widely used. Better bonding agents were discovered to work with porcelain. Now veneers typically last between ten and thirty years without falling off. Porcelain veneers are very durable and not likely to stain as much as other types of veneers. They can handle typical wear and tear, but they may eventually need to be replaced due to cracking, leaking, chipping, discoloration, or injury from tooth grinding.
Porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable once bonded to the teeth. They are resistant to the substances that normally stain teeth such as coffee, tea, or even cigarettes. Their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Porcelain veneers are most commonly used to reshape teeth, change tooth color, close spaces between teeth, and fix worn or chipped teeth.
Applying a porcelain veneer takes a great amount of technical skill and attention to detail. It requires a knowledge of cosmetics and a desire to make the tooth beautiful and perfect in appearance. A person who is not aware of small details will not be able to apply a veneer that perfectly matches your teeth for size and shape.
