Porcelain Veneers Work Wonders
- Posted on: Jan 30 2014
One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures nowadays, porcelain veneers take over countries like the US, UK, and Australia in brightening people’s smiles by improving their teeth. Porcelain veeners are shell-like in appearance and are placed on the teeth surface, covering up their imperfections such as chips, cracks, or discolorations. It is done by shaving off a thin layer of the tooth’s enamel to make way for where the veneers are placed. The contour of the teeth is customizable according to the patient’s preference and the doctor’s recommendation. But what makes porcelain veneers seem so popular today?
Durability at its finest
Porcelain veneers in Newton have been proven to be very durable, resisting biting pressure more than other dental devices. They may seem to be very thin and brittle; these veneers take on strength once they are bonded to a healthy tooth. They even last approximately 10 to 15 years when given proper care.
Strength is not their only asset. These tiny shells, although they are only attached to the teeth, look completely natural in appearance. The porcelain’s translucent property blends with the enamel’s characteristics, making one’s smile livelier. Compared to composite resin, which is also used to fill teeth, porcelain veneers look much better.
Eat all you want
You will never have to worry about the food that you eat. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. The smooth and ceramic property of porcelain allows it to resist stain from dark food or even from cigarette, giving you the freedom to satisfy your appetite without compromising showing off your lovely smile.
Safe and quick application
Since these tooth devices are just 0.5-0.7 mm thin, there is only little amount of tooth that is removed during the procedure to make room for the veneers. This means, you can preserve as much of your teeth as possible while improving it big time.
