Nowadays, more than ever, people are searching for different ways to improve the appearance of their teeth, straighten their teeth and ultimately, improve their smile. Although there are many over-the-counter products and other questionable methods available, the safest and most affordable method for having a white, beautiful smile is through visiting the cosmetic dentist.

One of the best cosmetic dental procedures for improving cracked, chipped or discoloured teeth or correcting uneven teeth and different sized teeth is via dental veneers. Cosmetic dentals veneers are custom made according to the shape, colour and size of the affected tooth. They come in different thicknesses, ranging anywhere from 0.5 millimetres thick to 1 millimetre thick. The best part about dental veneers is that they are available in a wide variety of materials like resin, acrylic or porcelain. Depending on your budget, you can choose the most appropriate material.

Dental veneers are thin facings just like the shell of the enamel and are placed directly over the top and front of the affected tooth. Dental veneers are transparent and blend easily with the affected tooth, making it look healthy, real and better in appearance. Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment suitable for those people who have worn-out, chipped, cracked, stained or crooked teeth.

It is important to consult, discuss and take advice from your cosmetic dentist before the dental treatment. Additionally, you should also ask for proper maintenance tips after the dental veneer treatment is over.
