The Book of Life
Ever wonder how those movie stars and celebrities have such terrific youthful smiles? Well some are just lucky, but many have opted for porcelain veneers, the ultimate in cosmetic improvement.
Veneers are very thin porcelain shells that can provide a beautiful yet natural tooth appearance. They can correct chipped, stained, uneven and broken teeth. They can correct spaces between your teeth and whiten your smile. Veneers require less tooth removal than crowns, they are tolerated by the gum tissue very well and are stain resistant.
Are veneers for you? Consult with your dentist and tell him what you want to accomplish. When veneers are done, a small amount of tooth surface is removed. A mold of your teeth is sent to a dental laboratory. Temporary veneers are placed while the porcelain ones are being made. These can often be used “diagnostically.” This means that the temporary veneers can be evaluated for the changes made and can be used as a guide for the final veneers so that you can get the result you want.
With porcelain veneers, you can have that youthful white smile of your dreams in a very short period of time. So stop waiting. Consult with your dentist and see if this is for you.
