Porcelain veneers are nothing more than an ultra-thin shell of porcelain or some other similar type of composite material that is permanently cemented over the outward surface of the tooth. The main purpose of placing dental veneers is to deal with worn tooth enamel, uneven teeth as well as poor alignment or spacing. This type of technology is equally impressive when used to deal with cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth . With so much to offer it is clear to see why porcelain veneers only continue to become more and more popular each and every year. This is a type of cosmetic dentistry that can help improve a smile through better shape and color of teeth.
Veneers that are made of porcelain are affordable and can substantially improve smile appearance. Best of all, there is virtually no need to remove tooth structure as compared to when placing crowns . The application of porcelain veneers is often employed to deal with worn enamel or teeth that have excessive wear and tear. Tooth enamel that has worn down over time because of exposure to certain foods and liquids as well as even medications can be fixed with veneers. Even when teeth become worn due to age, genetics or other related problems benefit from all that veneers made of porcelain have to offer .
