A Convenient Way to Makeover Your Smile
Patients today have several options to makeover their smiles, all depending on their unique wants and needs. For example, a teeth-whitening treatment may help erase excessive stains from your smile. Bonding and contouring can help if you have chipped teeth or gaps in your smile. However, if a small amount of your tooth’s structure needs to be replaced or if you have several different cosmetic dentistry concerns, we may recommend porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are permanently bonded to the front surface of your natural teeth. Each shell is crafted from dental porcelain that is specially tinted to match your teeth’s unique color and shade. Consistent good dental hygiene and regular dental checkups can help keep your veneers lasting for years. Since they can completely transform your smile, we often recommend them for such dental issues as
- Chipped teeth or teeth with small breaks or cracks
- Crowded or uneven teeth
- Discolored teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Gapped teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth or teeth with pits or texture issues
- Teeth with worn enamel
