Those Hollywood smiles are not just for Hollywood people anymore. You can have a perfect smile through the transformation that porcelain veneers provide. This simple cosmetic dental procedure can make a huge difference in your appearance. If you are considering the decision to make some aesthetic changes to your smile, porcelain veneers may just be right for you.
This way of changing one's appearance has been around for decades. There has been a resurgence of this method for acquiring the perfect smile in the last few years. In the early years of film, dental veneers were created to enhance smiles for onscreen appeal. At that time they were not permanent. Through the years, dental veneers have been improved and become more durable and permanent. Today, one can hardly tell the difference between veneers and natural teeth.
Making a Decision for Porcelain Veneers
People choose porcelain veneers to address different dental issues. Slightly misaligned anterior teeth can be straighter with veneers. Gaps, chips and other disfigurements of teeth can often be rectified by getting veneers. However, they are not for everyone. They do not address problems created by extreme gaps, nor do they correct major misalignment of front teeth.
There are a few considerations to take into account when making the decision to get porcelain veneers. To begin with, candidates for this procedure need to have good oral hygiene and good oral health. The teeth on which the veneers will be placed must have sufficient healthy tooth surface since placement requires removal of some enamel. Also, it is important to realize that this is may not be a permanent solution to whatever issue you may be dealing with. It may be necessary to replace your veneers from time to time, an additional costs that should be taken into consideration when making your decision.
