QUESTION: What Are Veneers for Teeth?
Have you wondered how to improve your smile when you have chipped, stained, misaligned, and/or gapped teeth? Porcelain veneers can be the answer for you. It can greatly improve your smile in no time at all.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to your teeth. Inherently porcelain is brittle but when bonded to a hard surface such as your tooth, it becomes very strong and durable. It appears very life-like because of its translucent material which better mimics a natural tooth's light reflecting properties. It is stain resistant which is great for people whose consumption habits include drinking coffee tea, red wine, and tobacco products.
This is a great alternative for slightly misaligned and/or gapped teeth as it can 'restore' a beautiful smile without the same costs and time required for other treatments. However, depending on the severity of your condition, orthodontics may be the best choice for you. Your dentist will be able to help you make this determination.
Veneers don't require any special treatments at home either. All you need is to follow a good oral hygiene program as you normally would with your natural teeth.
