For decades, people have marveled at the smile flashed by Hollywood stars. In the early years of film, dental veneers were created to provide more appealing smiles for the film stars. In the beginning they were removable and worn just for filmmaking. Later they became more permanent due to their ability to cover up a variety of flaws. For years, this was a cosmetic dental treatment only available to the rich and famous. Now porcelain veneers are readily available for anyone who wants to improve their smile and meets the criteria.
Even though veneers have been around for decades, they are seeing a resurgence in popularity. They have the ability to transform your smile and enhance your appearance. Porcelain veneers look so much like real teeth that it is difficult to tell the difference between a smile with veneers and one that is natural.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
A host of issues can be managed with dental veneers. Slightly misaligned teeth can look straighter with veneers. If you are dealing with small gaps between your teeth or discoloration of tooth enamel, veneers take care of those problems. Veneers also address the problem of chips or cracks in teeth.
While veneers can make your smile tremendously beautiful, not everyone is a candidate for application. Besides having excellent oral hygiene practices and good oral health, candidates for porcelain veneers must have ample tooth enamel on their existing teeth to support the veneers. It is important to realize also that this is a permanent solution to whatever issue you are planning on addressing. Veneers are permanent, but they may need to be replaced at some time and that will be an additional expense.
