How to improve your smile fast  and to get back in shape your teeth by using porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers:

Porcelain veneers are custom made porcelain wafers made in dental laboratory  in order of 4 – 8 mm thick that dentist will place over the front of your teeth. Dental veneers help to enhance the beauty of your teeth and also help to repair the damage.

Porcelain veneers can whiten stained teeth and fill a gapped tooth, or can  correct a crooked tooth.

Why to use porcelain veneers:

The procedure is very simple , can be performed in couple of hours and can help you get a perfect smile. Porcelain veneers are attached by using a special dental cement resin which creates a bond. This bond is strong and is almost unbreakable. Usually after you have had veneers fitted , they should last up to 20 years.

It is good to know you can buy different brands of porcelain veneers. A very popular brand is called Lumineers and it is a good option for people with sensitive teeth because they can be placed without the need for dental anesthetic.

What else you have to know about porcelain veneers is that they are not used to strengthen your teeth, they just resurfacing the front side of your tooth to look better.

Because the front side of your teeth has been enclosed under a layer of porcelain , Lumineers smiles can seem a bit toothy, the teeth being larger. But this is a small inconvenient because other cosmetic changes like white teeth  and  uniform appearance of  your teeth will make your smile very beautiful. Another disadvantage of Lumineers vs. traditional  dental veneers is that Lumineers don’t last as so long as traditional porcelain veneers.

Because over contoured teeth are harder to clean, the potential for problems associated with plaque accumulation can be kept in control with an impeccable oral hygiene and dental care at home , using brushing and flossing.


If you want a no-drilling placement process, a no- shots placement procedure and a totally reversible procedure, then Lumineers are indicated for you. If you want your dental veneers to last more time, then traditional dental veneers are a good option.

A normally placement of a dental veneer requires 2 visit to dentist.
