In the last few years, there has been growing demand for veneer treatment and it’s easy to see why. These ultra-light porcelain shells are capable of transforming even the most unsightly and unattractive teeth into flawless, gleaming smiles.
Here are some interesting facts about veneers:
Veneers are a celebrity favourite
Veneers are a very popular choice for celebrities and many of today’s best-loved stars have veneers to thank for their stunning smiles. Stars who have had veneers include Hilary Duff, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, Zac Efron and Victoria Beckham. Veneers are also hugely popular with reality TV stars, such as the cast of The Only Way is Essex.
Veneers can be made from various materials
In most cases, veneers are made from porcelain, but there are other materials that can be used. Examples include dental composite, which is a cheaper option, and other ceramics such as Cerinate, a patented pressed ceramic, which is used to make Lumineers.
Most veneers are a similar thickness to a contact lens
Veneers are very light and thin and most types of porcelain veneer are around the same thickness as a contact lens. The thinner the veneer, the less preparatory work is required.
Veneers can be an option for patients with many common flaws
Veneers are known for creating beautiful smiles, but they can also have restorative benefits and they offer a solution for patients with a wide range of common aesthetic problems, including chipped and worn teeth, uneven and misshapen surfaces and gaps in the smile.
