Porcelain veneers are used in precision treatments in dental aesthetics (orthodontic aesthetics) as a solution for solving alterations in the colour of the teeth, allowing the patient to be able to have a perfect smile again. Taking into account that the face´s expression is the first thing the person who we are talking to sees, the placement of the porcelain veneers is very important, even allowing a patient to overcome the insecurity which showing a not very aesthetic mouth causes.
In simple terminology, a porcelain veneer is a more or less thin sheet that covers the whole front part of the tooth, sticking to it by means of a certain type of resin cement (naturally imperceptible). As a very complicated or painful intervention is not required, and the results are excellent (in length of time and appearance), the placement of porcelain veneers is a reconstructive technique that is much in demand among orthodontic aesthetic treatments, above all, in those cases in which the reconstruction of a smile is more complicated.
Many film actors and actresses, singers and famous people and other personalities have already improved – without anyone being able to tell – the design of their smile through this type of veneer.
