Many celebrities have a secret weapon to achieve their camera-ready smiles. Their memorable smiles are the result of veneers. Although you may not be a famous celebrity, you can still achieve a smile like one.
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are:
- Worn down
- Irregularly shaped
- Gapped or spaced
Veneers may also be ideal when you're unhappy with your smile!
Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin material. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than composite veneers and more closely match the natural color of teeth. However, they are also more expensive and involve more tooth structure removal than composite veneers.
Composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain veneers and can usually be completed in one office visit. However, they may not resist stains as well as porcelain veneers and may need to be replaced sooner.
Dental veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry. If properly cared for with regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits, they can last for many years.
