A Convenient Way to Makeover Your Smile
When it comes to your smile makeover, you have a multitude of options, depending on your specific needs and preferences. For instance, if your teeth are stained, then you might benefit from teeth-whitening. If they’re chipped or have gaps between them, then tooth bonding may be a better option. In cases when you have several different cosmetic concerns, or when you need to replace a small amount of your tooth’s outer structure, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers. Using advanced digital technology and a keen, artistic eye, your dentist can ensure that your veneers are designed to closely mimic the size, shape, color, shade, contour, and healthy appearance of your natural teeth. Best of all, veneers are simple to take care of, requiring little more than consistently good hygiene and regular preventive care at your dentist’s office.
What Porcelain Veneers Can Do
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are designed according to the precise measurements of your natural teeth. Each shell is crafted from dental porcelain that is specially tinted to match the unique color and shade of your teeth. After they’ve been crafted, each veneer is permanently bonded to the front surface of your tooth, instantly improving its appearance. Because of their ability to completely transform your teeth, veneers are often recommended for a variety of different reasons, including:
- Discolored teeth that do not respond to teeth-whitening.
- Gapped teeth.
- Crowded or uneven teeth.
- Chipped teeth or teeth with small cracks or breaks.
- Oddly shaped teeth or teeth with pits or texture issues.
- Teeth with worn enamel.
