Veneers are thin shells or shell that is applied to the outer surface of teeth to improve their appearance. To better understand the concept, we can make an analogy between the facets and false nails. Faceting restorative dentistry is a dental procedure that falls into the category of dental aesthetics as it can improve the shape, position, appearance and colour of teeth. As veneers enhance one's appearance, dental veneer instalation comes under cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers can be made from both ceramic and aesthetic composite resin. Ceramics can be made directly or indirectly, by modeling within the oral cavity. Ceramic veneers are stronger, more expensive and have a longer lifespan (up to 15 years) than those of composite materials that have a life span of up to 2 years. Also, the composite material can change colour over time, but has ceramic enamel translucency and natural glow. Due to these reasons, they are recommended by most of the cosmetic dentists.

Cosmetic veneers are very popular these days and it is not just with the young crowd. The installation of veneers is effective in cases where there are contraindications for other methods of aligning the teeth like braces or eliners. In fact, a large number of older dental patients are looking at updating their smiles as well. Anyone that has a smile that is less than perfect could benefit from dental veneers. Here are some outstanding reasons why:
Whether your teeth are simply stained from drinking too much coffee, or they only have started to darken with age, porcelain veneers can restore your teeth to their former beauty. Nothing is more embarrassing than to smile and show all stains.
If you have two men or women that are equal except that one has a radiant, nice smile, who would you go out with? We do live in a society that counts appearance fairly high on the dating scale. A wonderful smile is a big part of that quotient. A horrible smile can virtually kill your chances.

Don't misunderstand... veneers are not cheap. Still, the cost as compared to several years ago is better. There are more and more dentists turning towards this as an option so the competition is getting stronger. Veneers will never be a cheap option, but they are at least possible for most anyone with enough commitment.
Most of the time, a veneer will be there forever. They are extra strong and are a wonderful option for those that are wanting to keep the basic structure of their own teeth. Crowns are there for folks that have a need, but veneers are generally going to utilize your existing teeth and will be very strong.
If you have uneven rows of teeth, then veneers can even them out perfectly. That is one huge draw for this type of dental work. In the end, you walk away with strong, permanent, straight teeth. Some folks have gone their entire lives with crooked teeth only to enjoy a perfect smile later in life. That is a strong motivator for those that have that problem.
If you are considering getting this type of dental work done, you should certainly consider asking around. The prices vary wildly as does the level of quality. Compare and contrast several places before settling on just one and you will end up with high-quality work at a fair price.

Porcelain veneers are the best if you want to recreate the look of your teeth. The veneers are made from slices of porcelain and are placed on the teeth. With these veneers, you can alter the position of your tooth slightly. You can also alter the shape, color and even size. What makes porcelain among the best material for making veneers is its resilience, almost the same as the naturally occurring enamel. The porcelain veneer can withstand the constant wear and tear that is caused by chewing food. Other aspects of porcelain that makes it ideal are:
The porcelain used to make veneers is usually of high quality. This means that it does not take on stains from substances it comes in contact with. This means that the veneers will last for a long time without need for specialized cleaning or replacement.

Since the veneers are customizable to match the existing teeth, you have an assurance that you do not need major work done on your teeth before getting the procedure done.
