For some people, a near-perfect smile seems more-than-nearly impossible despite the effort they put into keeping their teeth clean and healthy. If you don’t know much about cosmetic dentistry, you might also assume that improving your smile’s imperfections would be too daunting of a task. However, the beauty of modern dental treatments is that they address any threat to your smile’s health and wellbeing, including its outward appearance. When it comes to correcting multiple cosmetic issues, porcelain veneers are often the best solution, since they can improve your smile with just one procedure.
Why Porcelain Veneers Look So Natural
The porcelain in porcelain veneers is a significant reason why they are so popular, and why they look so natural. Dental porcelain, or ceramic, is designed to match the color of your natural, healthy teeth, but is also semi-translucent like tooth enamel. Each porcelain veneer is hand-crafted to the unique shape and look of one of your teeth, and then carefully bonded to the front of that tooth to completely reinvent its appearance.
What Veneers Can Do
As a mini-smile makeover, porcelain veneers are able to correct a multitude of cosmetic issues, including;
- Stained/discolored teeth that cannot be brightened with teeth-whitening
- Chipped and worn down teeth that interrupt your smile’s contour
- Slightly crooked teeth, as long as they do not require orthodontic correction (repositioning)
- Gaps between one or more teeth
- Teeth that seem shorter than those around them
- And more
Are Veneers Right for You?
To place your porcelain veneers, we will first prepare the appropriate teeth by slightly reshaping the enamel on their front surfaces. Recontouring the teeth allows the veneers to fit comfortably and naturally, but it is also permanent. When deciding if porcelain veneers are the right enhancement for your smile, we will evaluate a number of factors. For instance, the health of your teeth and whether or not your smile can be improved with a less permanent treatment, like teeth-whitening.
