It is said that smile is the most beautiful curve that set many issues straight. And to sweeten that curve man has crafted techniques in the name Cosmetic Dentistry. Veneering is an important smile correction and enhancement technique employed in this branch of dentistry. It is done by placing ultra-thin shells in front of the teeth which is to be corrected. This ultra-thin material used here is made of porcelain.
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are reliable wafer thin materials. They are tooth coloured and thus cannot be differentiated from original tooth and are custom made according to the shape and size of the patient's teeth. The veneers are attached to the front surface of the teeth effectively morphing it's size, shape and colour.
Veneers are usually made from resins and porcelain. The advantage of porcelain over resin is that they resist stains more effectively than their resin counterpart. Although resin veneers are cheaper than porcelain, the ability of the latter to reflect light in the same manner as natural teeth increases it's popularity. The porcelain veneers are more gum friendly as the gum tissues are more tolerable to porcelain veneers than resins. They also do not require extensive shaping and are much stronger.
Porcelain veneers are used to fix worn down, discoloured, uneven, misaligned and chipped broken teeth. They help in fixing gaps in teeth as well these veneers do not work well with decayed teeth. They generally last for about 7 to 15 years. The only disadvantage of Porcelain Veneer is that, once broken it is ir-repairable.
