Porcelain Veneers for a Beautiful Smile
Do you have one (or several) teeth that are chipped, cracked or broken? Have you ever seen someone that lights up the room with a perfectly white, straight smile and asked yourself, “Are those teeth real?”
While some people are blessed with seemingly perfect teeth, the vast majority of people you see on tv, in magazines, or even at the office with “perfect teeth” actually have a secret-- they have porcelain veneers.
? What are porcelain veneers?
A porcelain veneer is simply a thin piece of porcelain (about the thickness of a contact lens) that covers your natural tooth in order to create a perfect smile. Most people who choose to have veneers will get them over their front two teeth, as well as several other upper teeth that show when you smile.
One important note in regards to veneers-- it is an irreversible procedure. In order for the veneers to fit perfectly, some of your tooth enamel will likely need to be removed. If you are considering veneers, it’s important to understand this point.
? What problems will porcelain veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers fix a wide variety of dental problems, including the following:
- Teeth that have become chipped or cracked
- Gaps in teeth
- Teeth that are severely stained, and teeth whitening have not not been effective
And more. If you look in the mirror and do not like the appearance of one or more of your upper teeth (the ones that show the most when you smile), there is a good chance that porcelain veneers can fix your problems.
"Dr. Bram moulds your teeth and then he has to like take, to chip your teeth away to make the mould so he chips your teeth away and then he gives you a mould that goes over what’s left of your teeth until the veneers are made and then you come back about a week later. They numb you up pretty well during the procedure and then they put them on."
