Contrary to popular belief, a beautiful smile does not have to cost a fortune! Thanks to modern advances veneers are now quite affordable. Thanks to veneers, cosmetic dentistry has changed dramatically and has become more popular throughout the years. Dental veneers require low maintenance and very little changes to the existing teeth. The only maintenance requirement is good oral hygiene is once treatment is finished. When traditional veneers are applied, a small amount of tooth enamel typically needs to be removed to fit the permanent veneers onto the teeth. The required amount of enamel adjustment depends on the existing tooth alignment. Teeth that exhibit excessive of crowding or spacing tend to require more enamel reduction when compared to teeth with milder alignment issues. For this reason, veneers are usually an irreversible treatment so it is important to be prepared for a new, permanently improved smile!
So what exactly are veneers?
Veneers are ceramic (generally made of porcelain) ultra-thing shells which are fitted onto the front of existing teeth. Due to the simplicity of the procedure, veneer treatment requires little to no anesthesia. Porcelain veneers are durable, long-lasting (up to 10-20 years) and require very little maintenance.
