Veneers can enhance your pearly whites
Updated: 10/15/2008 10:00:43 AM
 

Veneers can enhance your pearly whites There are many cosmetic dentistry options available to people who want to change something about their smile.

One of these alternatives, porcelain veneers, may be appreciated by patients who are looking for a way to correct stained, broken or misshapen teeth, as well as fill in gaps.

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells made of tooth-colored materials that are custom-made to fit the patient's teeth.

It requires a minimally invasive procedure which usually leaves the complete tooth structure intact.

"Minimally invasive veneers help patients conserve their enamel, which is a big attraction," according to Dr Eugene L. Antenucci, a spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry.

The AGD says that some people may have misconceptions about porcelain veneers, including fears that they will lead to gum disease.

However, a dentist who is applying veneers will finish and polish the edges to make sure they are smooth. Patients should also make sure they follow good dental hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily.

People who think they may want to have porcelain veneers applied should speak with their dentist, who will let them know if they are a good candidate for the procedure.
