Improving your smile’s appearance may mean little more than brightening your teeth with teeth-whitening, or it may mean having to alter the size and shape of one or more teeth. While cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of solutions for different concerns, some patients can enjoy complete smile makeovers with just a single procedure—porcelain veneers. If you want a better looking smile but have several cosmetic issues to address, then ask your dentist if you can benefit from one or more porcelain veneers.
What Are Veneers Used For?
Porcelain veneers, which are thin, custom-designed shells of lifelike porcelain, are often recommended for a wide range of cosmetic dental issues. Each veneer is crafted according to a tooth’s unique dimensions and color, and when placed over the tooth, the veneer can instantly improve its overall appearance. Because they can cover the tooth’s entire front surface, veneers can be ideal for issues such as minor surface cracks, severe staining, worn down surfaces, oddly spaced teeth, and much more.
Do They Really Look Natural?
One of the greatest benefits of porcelain veneers is that they can help patients enjoy better looking smiles without needing a lot of dental work. Another is that veneers are so lifelike they are virtually undetectable, blending in seamlessly with the natural, healthy teeth around them. The porcelain used to create veneers is custom-tinted to match the exact color and shade of your teeth. It is also semi-translucent, just like natural tooth enamel, and can be layered to mimic the luminosity of your healthy tooth structure.
