Wednesday, 01 Dec 2010 12:51 PM

If you suffer from uneven, crooked teeth and other disproportionate teeth conditions, porcelain veneers may be the solution. Porcelain Veneers, also known as porcelain laminates or dental veneers, are shells of porcelain that are used to cover the front of your teeth to improve appearance by enhancing the shape and whiteness of the teeth.

By using porcelain veneers, many people have been able to improve their smiles with whiter, healthier looking teeth. Porcelain veneers have also been highly successful in straightening crooked teeth iporcelain veneers deeth

The best thing about porcelain dental veneers is that they are completely noninvasive. Porcelain veneers are very natural-looking, as the porcelain veneers only cover the front of the teeth.
Porcelain veneers are also used to treat several other disproportions in the teeth, like crooked teeth and tetracycline-stained teeth with gray spaces between them. Porcelain veneers are also used to treat yellow and sensitive teeth. Darker teeth that cannot be bleached can also be made to look white with porcelain veneers. Worn-out teeth and an uneven bite may require complex surgery for correction, but so far, porcelain veneers have been successfully used for their treatment.
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, and even cigarette smoking. Moreover, veneers and laminates have a natural appeal to them and last anywhere between 10 to 50 years, depending on the skills of the dentist. Porcelain veneers are brushed, flossed, and treated just like natural teeth. You would not even know they are in your mouth, as they become integrated into your natural tooth structure.
Porcelain teeth veneer can be easily applied to your teeth by taking a mould of the teeth for fabricating the veneers. Such custom-made veneers bind to the teeth with the help of a very strong adhesive that is used in dental bonding techniques.
Dental porcelain veneers give a healthy and natural whiteness to teeth and enhance their appearance drastically. The veneers offer the patients a glass-like appearance to their teeth, which may look better than that obtained through other procedures. In terms of cost, porcelain veneers may cost anything from $900 to $1,300, depending on the dentist and the amount of teeth you need covered.
