Veneers (Porcelain or Ceramics):
If you have been wondering how to make your smile more attractive than Veneers may just be the thing you need. Porcelain or ceramic Veneers are wafer thin, translucent laminates that are custom made after taking an impression. Veneers are permanently fixed on the teeth using a special adhesive to improve the aesthetics of the teeth.
Veneers are not only look and feel more natural as compared to dental bonding or crowns, they are much better at resisting stains. Veneers make your teeth and smile brighter with only minimum removal of enamel from the tooth. Along with being long lasting, the added strength of Veneers comes from the minimal transitional area which is not required to be placed under the gums. Teeth whitening before veneer treatment guards against the unsightly shade affect.
When it comes to correcting anterior teeth, whether its misalignment, gaps, forms or shades, Veneers offer the right solution with matchless aesthetics.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
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 veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
