Porcelain veneers are custom-made, handcrafted and thin shells of tooth-colored material that are mainly used to cover the front surface of teeth to enhance one's smile appearance.
A famous Hollywood dentist Dr. Charles Pincus imagined veneers as a way to increase the beauty of smiles in the late 1920s. Using veneers, he tried to apply artificial fronts to Hollywood stars’ teeth to make their smile more stunning on the screen.
Incredibly, it worked and quickly it became an enchanting trademark of the Hollywood industry! And now, the procedure and materials for porcelain veneers has been improved a lot by through modern dental technology.
At present, it brings the utmost eye-catching appearance of teeth as well as prevents dental problems.
