Porcelain veneers in Essex
have many uses.

They enhance appearance of teeth and also protect damaged teeth. The device is made from thin film of a restorative material. It is placed on surface of teeth directly. Porcelain of two types is used to make veneers – composite and dental. Composite veneers are constructed in mouth directly. They could also be made in laboratories and then glued on the teeth. They are glued to teeth with the help of an adhesive like Panavia that is a resin cement type. But porcelain veneers are fabricated only indirectly. Charles Pincus was the first to invent veneers in California. When veneers were first invented they failed to remain glued to the teeth for long as the adhesive that was used was the same as that used for the dentures. They were very commonly used at the time by actors for changing the look of teeth.

In early 80’s, 2 dentists, Simonsen and Calamia, found that hydrofluoric acid could be used for engraving porcelain. They also discovered that it was possible to enhance veneers by using composite resins along with porcelain. It was this that enabled permanent placing of the veneers on surface of teeth. Currently due to improved resins and cements, porcelain veneers in Essex are able to last for almost 3 decades. They need replacement when they get stained, cracked or chipped, leaked, decayed or because of shrinking of gum line. They are even damaged by physical impact or tooth grinding. The cost of veneers varies depending on location of dentist and their experience with the porcelain veneer technology. A year ago a tooth would cost you around 1000 to 3000.

So how are composite veneers and porcelain veneers different? The latter are better as they do not get stained easily. They are also sturdier. Veneers have become increasingly popular with patients as well as dentists, especially cosmetic dentists. They are also very popular among celebrities. The reason for this is that porcelain veneers dramatically and instantly improve look of smile and teeth. They are among the greatest solutions for individuals who have spaced and small teeth. These problems cannot be solved by Orthodontists. Also the veneers are used for repairing teeth which have undergone wear and hence look old. Many people possess teeth that are positioned incorrectly in jaw. Besides this, the porcelain veneers in Essex could also lengthen teeth that are very short or fill spaces between teeth where gums have moved away.

They are a great choice for making teeth look a lot more symmetrical in shape as well as color. Another reason why porcelain veneers are popular is the procedure is not invasive. Hardly any risks are associated with the treatment. Through they might seem to be miracle procedure for many dental issues, they do have their critics. Some people are of the opinion that they are overused by cosmetic dentists for treating dental problems and they believe that this could be unhealthy particularly in situations where the veneers are used for straightening otherwise healthy pearly whites. The reason for this is that around 30% of tooth surface is destroyed for applying veneers. But temporary veneers made of flexible resin that are available could be placed on surface of teeth and removed to be reused.
