Say Goodbye To An Imperfect Smile With Dental Veneers
The truth is that most of our teeth acquire stains, chips, breaks, and cracks over our lifetime. In addition, some of us have always been dissatisfied with the shape of our teeth, or some permanent discoloration, or maybe even fillings that are showing their age.
Did you know that most of those flaws can be masked by dental veneers?
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are very thin, but strong, shells that are permanently bonded to the front surface of teeth. Usually made of porcelain, dental veneers provide a natural-looking, beautiful new surface. That’s because dental porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent and can be matched to the color of adjacent teeth.
Natural looking and highly resistant to permanent discoloration from coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco, your smile will have a healthy, natural look!
The glamorous history of veneers…
It was Dr. Charles Pincus, a dentist for the stars in the 1920s, who came up with the concept. Many of his patients needed a brighter smile for their acting roles. So, in 1928, he was able to give them what they wanted with the invention of the veneer. He placed an acrylic material to the front of the tooth, which was temporarily held in place with a unique adhesive. Celebs – like Shirley Temple – would only wear them for the camera and take them off after their shoot was complete.
