Tired of hiding your teeth? Consider smile veneers
Permanent Veneers which you would need to see your dentist about, are used to improve your smile or rather your teeth appearance. They are thin porcelain made coloured shells that are fixed at the front surface of your teeth. Besides enhancing beauty, they are used to hide some defects such as discoloured, broken, chipped, or too-small teeth. Here are several types of veneers you should know.
Different types of veneers
Dental veneers are made of different materials. Applying traditional veneers is quite daunting. The process involves grinding the tooth structure or even going to the extent of removing some of the teeth. All this is done to allow proper placement. Because they are very thin and usually applied with a very thin layer of cement, they will not last for ever and will eventully require replacing. its difficult to say how long any particuilar set of veneers will last but obviously the more you have the greater the chance of failure at any particular time, dentists often quote the expected life of a single veneer being somewhere in the range of 7 to 15 years. Poorly fitting veneers will likely last for less time.
On the other hand, non-permanent, non-preparation clip-on veneers require little preparation. Unlike traditional veneers, the preparation process does not involve removing any enamel.
