No adult wants to wear a metal splint for months or even years. For this reason, the popularity of invisible braces has increased dramatically in recent years. However, invisible braces still require several office visits over a long period of time. As a result, more and more patients in cosmetic dentistry choose porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of crooked or chapped teeth without the time and hassle of actually straightening teeth. The facets are ultra thin porcelain slices that are adapted to cover your natural teeth. Time is the biggest advantage in choosing porcelain veneers to enhance the appearance of your crooked teeth.
Porcelain veneers can be permanently applied in only two office visits. On your first visit, you will be equipped for the facets and your teeth will be roughed out so that the veneers bind better. During the second, your veneers can be applied and you leave the office with a new smile.
"Most patients do not even realize that porcelain veneers are an option for repairing crooked teeth," says Kenneth Mogell, cosmetic dentist at Boca Raton. "Patients tend to think that their only choice is to live with crooked teeth or to face orthopedic appliances, which makes most adults choose crooked teeth because they are unhappy and embarrassed to in their respect.
The advantages of porcelain veneers are not only aesthetic. Bent teeth can increase the risk of tooth decay, cavities and gingivitis. Bent teeth can also interfere with occlusion or bite of the jaw. This can lead to muscle pain as well as headaches and migraines. Porcelain veneers can prevent these problems while relieving you of headaches and muscle aches.
Porcelain veneers look, feel and work in the same way as your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are a simple solution to many dental problems. If you have crooked teeth that you want to correct without the hassle of braces, you should talk to a cosmetic dentist today.
