If you’ve ever wondered why so many actors, models, celebs, and media personalities all seem to have such perfect teeth, you should familiarize yourself with “dental veneers.” Also referred to as “Hollywood teeth,” dental veneers are wafer-thin, custom made shells of tooth colored materials (porcelain or resin) that are designed to cover the front surface of teeth. After removing about a half-millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, the dentist bonds these thin shells to the front of the teeth, effectively changing their color, shape, size, and/or length. Dental veneers are available to anyone looking to improve the aesthetics of his or her smile. They are also routinely used to fix chipped, broken, worn, irregularly shaped, misaligned, and uneven teeth.
P.S. Dental veneers are sometimes used as an alternative to orthodontic treatment when patients want to fill the gaps between front teeth that otherwise detract from their smiles.
