Your smile’s appearance is important; it’s one of the dominant features of your face, and if you aren’t proud of how it looks, then it can affect your overall self-confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of options to address all types of esthetic concerns, and each treatment can be custom-designed to meet your unique needs. For patients with multiple types of issues to address at once, dentist often recommend porcelain veneers for their high versatility and lifelike appearance. If you’d like to improve your smile, then ask your dentist about veneers and whether or not they’re the best option for you.
What can veneers improve?
Some treatments are designed for specific types of cosmetic issues, such as teeth-whitening to erase teeth stains. However, the beauty of porcelain veneers is that they can correct several issues at once, reducing the amount of dental work you need to improve your smile. Veneers are small, thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surfaces of your teeth, correcting issues such as:
- Severe teeth stains
- Chipped teeth
- Excessive tooth wear
- Minor tooth cracks
- Noticeable spaces between teeth
- Slight tooth misalignment
- And more
Will they look natural?
Veneers are hand-crafted from advanced dental porcelain that is tinted to match the unique color and shade of your healthy, natural teeth. Once placed, veneers will be virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile, creating a highly natural and discreet finish.
Will the procedure affect my tooth structure?
Unlike a dental crown, which is placed completely over your tooth, a veneer is only bonded to the front of a tooth. Therefore, preparing the tooth for veneer placement requires only minimal alterations to your tooth’s surface.
