Porcelain Veneers – The Popular Way To Create A Hollywood Smile

Updated on July 14, 2010

The technological advancement in the area of dentistry means that almost anyone can get a perfect smile regardless of what your teeth looked like during your early years.

The invention of porcelain veneers has now given people a choice between spending up to two years wearing an orthodontic brace, which are not the most attractive things to have to deal with, especially when you are no longer a teenager, or you can choose to make a couple of trips to a cosmetic dentist surgery to get porcelain veneers created for you.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

A veneer is a specifically shaped piece of material that is formed into the shape of a tooth and is placed over the surface to improve the look of the original tooth. It is attached by using a specially formulated dental cement resin which creates a bond that is almost unbreakable.

The process of creating veneers has been around for centuries but it is only recently that the procedure has been perfected. It has now become both accessible and affordable to everyone who wants to invest in the treatment.

Once you have had veneers fitted they should last up to 20 years. It is naturally important and advisable that you make regular visits to your dentist for check ups to make sure everything is in working order and properly maintained.

The process of getting veneers will involve the permanent alteration in the appearance of your own teeth. They will need to be filed down to make space for the new covering.

It is normal that more than one tooth will be prepared and treated so that the dentist can give you a natural looking smile where all the teeth are not only straight and uniform but also have the same shade so that the work that you have had done does not stand out and ruin the overall look.
