If your smile is less than pleasing to you, there are a number of cosmetic dentistry options that can fix it. One of the most effective is porcelain veneers. They are less expensive than dental crowns because they are a partial restoration as opposed to a full restoration, and they deliver much the same effect in terms of appearance.
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are thin shells of dental ceramic that fit over the front of your teeth in order to conceal imperfections like gapping, staining, chipping or unevenness. Often, this is all you need to get the smile you want.
Porcelain veneers look completely natural, resist staining and will not decay. Of course you still have to brush, floss, and get regular cleanings and checkups in order to protect the underlying tooth structure. Properly cared for, you can expect your dental veneers to last a very long time, and if you do not want to tell anyone that you have had veneers installed, there is no reason why it cannot remain a secret between you and your dentist.
Almost anyone can be a candidate for dental veneers. However, if other treatments are more appropriate to restore your smile, your dentist can advise you accordingly.
