Smile More With Dental Veneers
If you are not happy with your smile, dental veneers may be the solution for you. Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dental treatment that can improve the appearance of your teeth. They are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a wide variety of dental problems, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth that are stained or discolored
- Teeth that are worn down
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
How dental veneers came to be
In the early days of dental veneers, they were made from a variety of materials including ivory, bone, and mother-of-pearl. These materials had to be individually cut to fit each patient's mouth and then glued into place. The results were often less than ideal and the veneers would frequently come loose or fall out.
It wasn't until the 1920s that dental veneers made from porcelain became available. Porcelain is a much more durable material than Ivory or bone, and it can be molded to fit the contours of a patient's teeth much more precisely. Today, dental veneers are still made from porcelain, and they are one of the most popular dental procedures.
