porcelain veneersIf you’ve ever watched recently made movies or TV at all, you’ve likely noticed how perfect celebrities’ teeth are nowadays. Not just white and shiny perfect, but perfect perfect. No gaps, no chips, and little variation in size or shape—it’s truly astounding how uniform and balanced their teeth look.

If you live in the real world, however, you know that teeth are not naturally like that. Our diets, genes, and lifestyle choices are plainly evident in ordinary peoples’ smiles. You see a great deal of variation in both alignment and tooth shape. If you’ve ever wondered how the rich and famous get such perfect looking teeth, the answer is almost always porcelain veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are the most comprehensive way to improve the appearance of our smile. If you want to “go big” in cosmetic dentistry, veneers are the best way to effect an impressive transformation. Unlike any other treatment (such as whitening, orthodontics, or bonding), porcelain veneers can alter almost every aspect of your smile.

Technically speaking, veneers are small, thin shells of strong dental porcelain that are permanently affixed to the front of each tooth. They provide a brand-new surface for each tooth, and can therefore change the color, size, shape, and texture of your whole smile. Many patients who once thought they needed orthodontics to straighten their teeth find that veneers can do the same job in just a fraction of the time. Veneers today are incredibly thin and natural looking, with some being only as thick as a contact lens.

Porcelain veneers can:

  • Fill gaps
  • Cover chips
  • Whiten your smile
  • Cover intrinsic stains
  • Resize your teeth
  • Create more even arches
  • Make teeth appear straighter

Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent alteration to your smile. This means that once you get veneers, you can’t go back to not having veneers, as a small amount of tooth enamel must be removed in order to attach each veneer. On average, they last about 10 years before they may need to have some maintenance done on them, but it all depends on how you use them. Some patients have had their veneers last two decades or more before they started to need replacement.

An Investment in Your Appearance

As the “big” option, veneers have a comparably big price tag. A full set of veneers is the most expensive treatment one can find in cosmetic dentistry because they require a very specific process, high quality materials and customized fabrication.

However, this doesn’t mean you need to break the bank to benefit from the transformative potential of porcelain veneers. Movie stars may have veneers applied to all their teeth, but you may only need veneers on one or two teeth to get the smile you’ve always wanted. For example, if you have two incisors that are smaller than your other teeth, just two veneers can create a more balanced an even smile. If you have one tooth that is permanently stained by an injury or tetracycline, just one veneer can fix the problem for good.

Despite their high cost, there are many people who invest in a set of veneers because they permanently transform your smile’s appearance. It’s not just Hollywood actors who are willing to invest in their appearance. Professionals from every walk of life have found veneers worth it, from realtors to lawyers and bloggers and housewives.
