What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin facades of advanced ceramics that are bonded to the front of the tooth. The veneer can extend over the biting surface or side of the tooth if necessary. This gives the tooth a new, more attractive visible surface.
That’s what enables veneers to give you essentially an entirely new smile: they do give your tooth an entirely new surface. This means that your smile can be remade without worrying about the limitations of your natural teeth. They can be as white as you want and can be the shape and arrangement that you want. You’re not limited by the family smile you have inherited from your parents and grandparents.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
People often think that veneers are fragile and prone to breaking, but that’s not true. In past, veneers were made of porcelain, but today they are made of advanced ceramics. Modern ceramics are so strong that they are commonly used in bulletproof vests and tank armor. Some are stronger than titanium.
