As the name goes, porcelain veneers are lightweight and thin pieces of porcelain created in the shape of teeth (or tooth) to strengthen the teeth and enhance their beauty. They are used by placing them on the teeth so when a person looks at your teeth he’s actually looking at the porcelain veneers that are beautiful, clean and add to your smile’s beauty.
There are several reasons for getting porcelain veneers and chipped, stained and crooked teeth are the most common cases where porcelain veneers are unavoidable. Too much space among the teeth and discoloration are also one of the common reasons why people get porcelain veneers. In many ways they are better substitutes of crowns.
Even though they require changing and fixing of new veneers but they are still durable enough to stay with you for many years before you must go to the dental clinic and have them replaced with the new ones.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Obtaining veneers generally demands simply two visits to finish the procedure, with virtually no anesthesia needed throughout the process. The teeth are prepared by gently buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is used and a shade (color) will then be selected by you and the dental professional.
On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for your veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
