Veneers, one form of cosmetic dentistry, is an easy way to improve your smile dramatically, leaving no reason to be self conscious about your smile. Many technologies exist to improve your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry simply refers to any procedure that makes your smile even more beautiful.
Veneers are thin porcelain plates that are cemented on the outside of mostly the front teeth to make them look white, straight and beautiful. They require minimal shaping of your teeth as opposed to crowns which require much more drastic shaping of your teeth.
If your teeth are stained, uneven, crooked, uneven, misshapen, too wide or too narrow or otherwise unsightly, you can greatly benefit from veneers. If they are chipped or worn from grinding or bonded with old, discolored filling material they can also help. Veneers are what Hollywood stars who began life with les than perfect teeth often turn to for adding extra oomph to their appearance.
Another advantage of veneers is that have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding. They last about 15 years and are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea and even cigarette smoking.
Opting for porcelain veneers can be a truly life-changing experience. However, it is important to remember that not everyone is an ideal veneer candidate. Dr. Arash Vahid and the professionals at AV Dental Associates in Jersey City can help you decide what will be the best option for your smile.
