Beautifying your smile has been made very easy by the use of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are bonded onto the surface of teeth to make them, smooth, consistent, whiter and brighter. Many people are now choosing to opt for veneers so that they can beautify their smiles.

The process is costly with the lowest cost being $500 dollars per tooth to $1300 dollars per tooth but the benefits are many.

Porcelain veneers give the feel and look of natural teeth. Once you get veneers you have to maintain them like you would your regular teeth and if a veneer wears away, it can be replaced. Porcelain veneers last anywhere between five to ten years if maintained properly, after which they must be replaced. Porcelain veneers can whiten your teeth as well, giving them a naturally glossy and clean finish.
