Many celebrities who have those bright, white perfectly pristine smiles have had dental work performed to achieve such smiles. Many of them have turned to dental veneers.
A Tried-and-True Procedure
Dental veneers have been available since the late 1920s; however, when they first came on the market, they were used almost exclusively by movie stars. Many of the stars of the silver screen had smiles created in the dental office.
Through the years, dental veneers have gone through a variety of improvements. In the beginning they were only available for the elite. Now anyone can achieve that picture-perfect smile. Movie stars, celebrities, today’s influencers and you can have that perfect smile thanks to dental veneers.
Advantages of Dental Veneers
There are many advantages to choosing dental veneers. When you have minor dental blemishes that you would like to address, they can be covered with dental veneers. These thin porcelain shields mask a host of problems such as:
- Tiny gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Badly discolored teeth
- Teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Other problems
Dental veneers can make a big difference in the appearance of your smile. They are a less expensive way to turn your smile from ho-hum to beautiful.
A Permanent Solution for Minor Problems
Dental veneers are a permanent enhancement for masking minor dental blemishes. The procedure does not take long and often does not require anesthetic. The veneers are thin porcelain shells that are adhered onto the face of the teeth.
A small portion of the tooth structure needs to be removed in order to adhere the porcelain shells to the front of the teeth. After the tooth has been prepared, an etching fluid is applied to the surface. Next, a special cement is applied and the porcelain shells are put on. A special light is used to cure the cement, so it hardens sufficiently.
Placement of dental veneers is a permanent solution for masking dental problems. Keep that in mind when making the decision whether or not to get them. They can provide you with your perfect smile in just a short period of time without the cost of other procedures.
