If you’re looking to transform your smile without the use of braces or surgery, porcelain veneers may be the answer. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves wafer thin shells of tooth colored material designed to be placed over the surface of the teeth that show when you smile. Each custom made shell is bonded to the front of a tooth, which completely changes the tooth’s appearance, color, shape, size or length.
Porcelain veneers are designed to resist stains better than natural teeth and other restorations. Veneers appear natural because they mimic the way light reflects off of the surface of the teeth. Veneers can last a very long time if taken care of properly.
Continuing to follow good oral hygiene procedures will also help to lengthen the lifespan of your veneers. Continue to brush and floss twice daily, and maintain regular dental visits for cleanings and examination.
