Are you looking for an easy and painless procedure to improve your smile? Porcelain veneers are the perfect solution. A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect damage to a tooth's surface. Porcelain veneers have many purposes other than perfecting your smile. They can be used on teeth that are chipped or broken, discolored, misaligned, uneven, worn down or to close gaps in teeth. Veneers may be used to cosmetically improve a single tooth or several different teeth. They help patients look and feel more confident, professional and have a great, natural looking smile. Veneers are brushed, flossed and treated just like natural teeth. How are the Porcelain veneers applied? A mold you your tooth or teeth is taking so the fabrication of the veneer can be made. The custom made veneers are then bound to each individual tooth with a very strong adhesive. The veneers are translucent and have a glass like appearance that is undetectably natural looking. If there is a stain, it can be polished off easily during your routine cleaning which is a major advantage. Looking for more information on porcelain veneers?
