What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are super thin pieces of porcelain or resin that are applied to the surface of your teeth. Once these shells of porcelain or resin are attached, they form a permanent bond that lasts for years. Even though some veneers are made of dental-grade resin, they are still often referred to as porcelain veneers. This dental treatment has been around for many decades and has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for certain cosmetic conditions. In the past, porcelain veneers were called “caps.” Since this dental treatment first became available, a lot of progress has been made. Porcelain veneers have come a long way, and now they are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Who Gets Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are appropriate for anyone who would like to have a more attractive smile. They are so effective and natural looking that many celebrities and movie and TV personalities have porcelain veneers and you probably don’t even know it. Porcelain veneers are for adults with permanent teeth. They are not for children who have not yet had their permanent teeth grow in.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent dental treatment, but they don’t last forever. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last ten years or so. With regular dental visits, your dentist can keep an eye on your veneers to ensure that they don’t need to be repaired or replaced.
