What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Transform Your Smile With Porcelain Veneer Smile Makeover.
Porcelain Veneers are the Hollywood way of bringing out the beautiful, permanently white smile in you. They are custom made ceramic facings and designed to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. Sometimes there is no need for injections as there may be no need for drilling of sensitive tooth structure – so no pain! In such cases veneers are totally reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
If you’ve been wondering what hollywood stars do to have such beautiful teeth – stop wondering!
Veneers can be used to correct an irregularly placed tooth without the need for orthodontic treatment. They can be done as a single tooth treatment alone, but are more commonly placed on a few teeth for the full effect of the smile, or on all of the visible teeth when you smile – this means the front 8-10 teeth. It just all depends on what type of smile you are after and what you are trying to achieve. They are a permanent way to have a whiter smile as veneers never discolour or dull in shade.
Of course there are still limitations to what can be achieved based on your bite and your smile. You do have to be realistic. It will not produce the teeth you see in touched up photography . Nothing will. However it is a way of improving the colour and look of your teeth quickly – with no braces involved. Teeth can be rotated, lengthened and shortened. The shape can be changed and of course so can the colour. But remember – unless you plan on veneering the bottom 8-10 teeth as well, you need to choose a colour that will blend reasonably with them. Nevertheless it is possible to lighten the upper teeth considerably before this starts to happen.
Porcelain Veneers are the best product to use to give you a beautiful smile. Porcelain is the product of choice to mimic the translucency, tone and depth of natural teeth.
Other options that are available are resin veneers, which also offer a great smile makeover solution, but nothing compared to custom made porcelain veneer, due to the ability of porcelain to mimic your natural tooth colour and due to the fact that it never discolours.
