One of the most affordable ways to get a beautiful new smile is porcelain teeth veneers
Failed porcelain veneers are a reality that some dental patients must deal with. It is hard to imagine what dentistry would be like today without this wonderful material. Porcelain veneers are much like replacing the shell on your cell phone. Nearly everyone has a cell phone these days, and some people do not want to go with a phone that looks like all the others that are mass produced. So it is possible to buy designer or decorative shells that will give your phone a whole new look. These shells come in countless colors and themes from your favorite pro or college teams to pop culture icons. Cell phones also take a beating during their use and a new shell is a great way to get a “new” phone without the great expense. This is how porcelain veneers work for our teeth.
Porcelain veneers are a thin layer, or shell of porcelain that is placed over your natural tooth. Veneers that are made from porcelain resist staining, look very natural, and with proper dental care, can last more than a decade. Proper care includes brushing and flossing according to the recommendations of your cosmetic dentist. Porcelain veneers are best suited for patients who want to improve their smile and who do not have structural issues. Each veneer is customized to match your smile. This means crafting a veneer that is perfectly aligned with, and matches the color of your natural teeth. A porcelain veneer is the perfect choice when you have chipped or cracked teeth.
Reasons for porcelain veneer failure
One of the most common problems in failed porcelain veneers is improper bonding. Dental veneers will fail if they have not been properly bonded to the teeth. There are very specific guidelines to be followed to make veneers tenaciously bond to teeth. If dental veneers are not bonded correctly they can eventually chip or break. Dental veneers can also fail because of less-than-ideal construction. Dental veneers that have not been polished to a lustrous and natural-looking sheen will end up being dull or lacking that pearly shine of a healthy tooth. If they are made correctly, porcelain veneers are lustrous, smile enhancing, and long-lasting.
