Porcelain Veneers

The makeover show "The Swan" popularizes this cosmetic dental procedure. A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that fits over a damaged, discolored, or misshaped tooth. Porcelain is an extremely durable material with a color, translucence and texture that is similar to tooth enamel. It is not susceptible to decay and resists staining while maintaining a natural appearance.It is bonded permanently to the tooth, usually the front ones, by resin cement.

Here are some applications:
The first case is a malaligned fronth teeth. Putting veneers will make the fronth teeth straight.

The second case is that of stained teeth. Porcelain veener is an option to those resistant to tooth whitening procedures and those with "intrinsic" or "inside" teeth discoloration just like that of tetracycline-induced staining (inborn discoloration of the teeth brought about by tetracycline use of the mother during pregnancy).
