If you had the ideal smile, would you hide it? Likely no. We all want a fantastic smile and will endure lots of dental time in order to achieve it. One of the best ways to improve chips, discoloration, misalignment and other complications is with the use of porcelain veneers.
A porcelain veneer is a medical appliance that’s applied as a cosmetic dental treatment. It’s thin and made out of pieces of porcelain that’s shaped to fit on the front of the teeth. Veneers are strong, durable and natural-looking. They are custom-made to match both the shape and color of the patient’s teeth, but not all veneers are created alike. Here is a brief description of all three versions:
MAC veneers. Made with pressed ceramics, this particular brand is different from others, which use layered ceramics. MAC veneers are also widely preferred by celebrities and athletes alike due to the realistic and translucent appearance it creates and its 16 color hues.
Da Vince veneers. Da Vince veneers are very thin and as a result are rarely noticeable. The brand has been around for over 25 hours and was the brand of choice in the tv show Extreme Makeover.
Lumineers. This particular brand of veneers is made from a special patented cerinate porcelain that is both very durable and at the same time, very thin. It is so thin that it’s been compared to contact lenses. Lumineers are widely considered as the brand of choice for patients who’re looking to attain that “bright, Hollywood smile”.
When it comes to veneers, it’s best to listen to the assessment of your cosmetic dentist about what will benefit your esthetic goals best and what the best course of action is for long-lasting results.
