Using Veneers to Improve Your Entire Smile


If your only concern with your smile’s appearance is teeth stains or a chipped tooth, then improving it may seem simple. However, for many people, their smiles exhibit several cosmetic concerns at once, each of which are often completely different in nature. Dealing with multiple different cosmetic smile blemishes can seem like much more of a hassle. However, with porcelain veneers, it may be simpler than you think. Made from thin shells of highly lifelike porcelain, veneers can be designed to completely transform the appearance of one or more teeth, and require minimal or no preparation before being bonded in place.

How porcelain veneers work

A porcelain veneer is designed according to highly detailed and specific measurements of a tooth’s front surface, and is customized to closely mimic the tooth’s healthy color and shape. Once crafted, the veneer can be permanently bonded to the front of the tooth, instantly correcting one or several different cosmetic blemishes. If you have several teeth that need improvement, then we can design and craft multiple veneers to correct them all during the same procedure. If you qualify, we may recommend no-prep veneers, which can be placed without the need to modify your tooth enamel at all.

When are veneers the best option?

Because of their ability to address several different types of issues, we may recommend veneers for a wide range of concerns. For example, some of the most common reasons for suggesting veneers include:

  • Improving severe tooth discoloration
  • Closing noticeable gaps between teeth
  • Restoring teeth that are chipped or cracked
  • Improving teeth that seem too small or misshapen
  • Improving the appearance of slightly crooked teeth
  • Correcting multiple issues at once
  • And more
