Porcelain veneers are pieces of thin porcelain that are often used in order to recreate the look of a natural and perfectly shaped tooth. Since the porcelain is of a similar texture and quality to that of the natural tooth enamel, these caps or replacement parts are extremely strong and hard to break. This can give confidence to anyone who wants to fix their smile and replace/add a few parts on to their teeth.
In fact, many celebrities use porcelain veneers in order to achieve the perfect smile that is so sought after in Hollywood. The beauty of these additions is the ability to add them on to any smile. If a tooth has been chipped or otherwise harmed, porcelain veneers can come to the rescue in order to restore the smile to its former perfection.
Reasons to Choose Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are used in a variety of situations. One may assume that people use porcelain veneers in order to simply correct their smile – even if it was already satisfactory. However, this claim is usually false as many people use porcelain veneers to change the original tooth when it has become discolored, changed shape, or become contoured. There are also many times when this option is highly successful for those who have chipped or fractured their teeth wish to remove gaps from the teeth, or the teeth have shifted positions and have become uncomfortable in the mouth. These are just a few of the reasons why one might choose to utilize porcelain veneers. As mentioned above, it doesn’t always have to do with aesthetics – it can sometimes be about comfort as well.
Porcelain veneers come sculpted individually for each and every client. This means that it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a natural tooth and one that has a porcelain veneer added on. Many clients are extremely pleased with the natural results of this type of addition. The other benefit to this type of treatment is that the natural tooth, or what remains of that tooth, will be left intact. This means that as little as possible is added on to the tooth in order to give a holistically realistic look and feel.
This is a permanent solution, which means that while one can use this method to fix and change your tooth on an aesthetic basis, you may not reverse the effects and revert back to the original tooth. One may, however, add on to the new veneer with more porcelain at a later date.
In order to maintain a perfectly healthy mouth, even with the new veneers, one must remember to treat the new teeth as if they were healthy, original ones. This means no excess biting/chewing of nails, teeth grinding, or other habits that naturally erode the enamel of the tooth. Porcelain veneers can be an extremely effective treatment for people wishing to change the overall appearance of their teeth. It is definitely an option to consider for those with teeth problems.
