When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers can produce some of the most dramatic results. In fact, veneers allow all types of patients to attain a perfect Hollywood smile despite what they were born with or suffered over time. If you are hiding your smile due to aesthetic imperfections, it may be time to consider a smile makeover with porcelain veneers.
Before you determine if veneers are right for you, it is important to understand what they are and how they are placed. Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. This material is durable for everyday dental function and it reflects light just like your natural teeth. Veneers are only used on the visible teeth of your smile, and they just hide the appearance of the aesthetic flaw instead of actually correcting it. In order for the veneer to strongly bond to the tooth surface, a tiny portion of the tooth must be shaved off prior to placement. In most cases, veneers require just two office visits for a life-changing set of beautiful teeth!
Here are five reasons why dental veneers may be right for you:
You Want to Avoid Braces
If you have crooked, rotated or mismatched teeth at the front of your smile, you may be able to avoid a lengthy time in orthodontics. Unless your overall bite needs correction, veneers can instantly hide the appearance of misaligned teeth.
You Want to Reshape or Resize Your Teeth
Teeth that are too short, too skinny or disproportioned can create an unsightly appearance. Fortunately, veneers can be custom shaped and sized to fix this. Whether you want front teeth that are longer, wider or more even, veneers can be the permanent solution you need for a beautiful and balanced smile.
You Want to Permanently Address Stains
If you are tired of repeated or failed teeth whitening treatments, you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers. Tooth stains can be stubborn. However, patients love the fact that veneers are not only made to be the dazzling white shade you choose, but they are resistant to future staining. As long as you keep up with your professional cleanings and daily brushing, you can go ahead and enjoy that cup of coffee without the worry of compromising your white smile.
You Want to Close Gaps
While some celebrities own their front tooth gap, the majority of people are bothered by open spaces and gaps between their teeth. With carefully fabricated veneers that are placed to fit together, your embarrassing tooth gaps can be a thing of the past.
You Want to Fix Chipped or Broken Teeth
Many tooth chips can be repaired with a dental filling. However, these fillings may not last or fail to fix multiple broken teeth. In such cases, veneers can cover up the unsightly damage while also providing additional strength to your underlying teeth so that further damage doesn’t occur.
