Since the early 1900s, celebrities on the silver screen have been using dental veneers to achieve the perfect smile. Elite actors and actresses masked imperfections and dental blemishes with veneers while making movies so they could have that impeccable smile that is expected in Hollywood. This treatment was one reserved for celebrities and not readily available for the general public. Today, anyone who desires to have a picture-perfect smile can become a candidate for this simple smile makeover procedure.
The materials and techniques used to create and place dental veneers have changed over the years. Today’s veneers are a vast improvement over those of yesteryear, thanks to advances in dental materials and technology. They offer a permanent solution to cover up a variety of minor dental imperfections.
Porcelain veneers can make slightly crooked teeth look straight. Narrow teeth can be made to look wider and close small gaps between teeth. If your teeth appear too short for your facial features, dental veneers can be used to give the teeth a longer look. Sometimes badly discolored or mottled teeth do not respond to teeth whitening products. Porcelain veneers can make your teeth look bright and white in just a matter of minutes.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Dental veneers offer you the choice of a smile makeover without extensive dental work. Thin porcelain shells are adhered to your natural teeth to provide the desired look. Dental veneers provide a permanent solution to minor issues. Most people prefer to have an even, symmetrical smile. To achieve this, six to eight veneers may be needed.
A thin layer of enamel is removed from your natural teeth before the veneer is bonded onto the tooth. Good candidates for this procedure have sufficient enamel for the procedure. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages for a while, as your teeth become accustomed to the veneers.
Adhering dental veneers to the teeth is a non-reversible process. It is important to remember that your veneers may need replacement years in the future. This will be an added expense for which you eventually may want to prepare.
