Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental option that can transform the way that your teeth look. Veneers are made using thin pieces of porcelain. Your dentist permanently bonds the porcelain to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are customized to your teeth and preferences. This cosmetic dental procedure is quick and relatively non-invasive. For some patients, porcelain veneers are the best option for getting the smile of their dreams. If you are wondering if porcelain veneers are a good option in your situation, it depends on what problem you are trying to correct. Porcelain veneers may be able to help you if you have deeply stained teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or are simply unhappy with the look of your smile.
Deeply stained teeth
Surface stains on your teeth can typically be removed using in-home or in-office teeth whitening methods. There are some types of stains, however, that are not on the surface. Your teeth can become permanently discolored from some types of medication and injury. This means that the stains are below the surface and will not respond to whitening efforts designed to remove surface stains. Porcelain veneers can cover deep discoloration and give you the white teeth you want. Since veneers are placed on top of the teeth, the factors that caused the original discoloration will not impact the veneers. If you have discoloration or stains that have not responded to other whitening efforts then porcelain veneers may be the best option.
Chipped or cracked teeth
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct or hide damage that you have to your teeth. Your dentist can use veneers to fix a chipped tooth or hide a cracked tooth. Veneers are customized for each patient which means that you can get the shape, size, and type that you need to address the damage to your teeth.
Unhappy with the look of your smile
Porcelain veneers are also a potential option if you are simply unhappy with the look of your smile. Veneers can be used to fill in gaps, provide a new shape to your teeth, and in some cases help teeth look straighter. Porcelain veneers have the ability to transform the look of your smile to one that is customized to your preferences. If you want a whiter, more perfect looking smile, veneers may be a good option for you.
There are a number of cosmetic dental procedures that can dramatically change the way that your teeth look. Porcelain veneers are a great option for many people because they are versatile, customizable, and require less prep work than some other types of cosmetic dental procedures.
