You look at yourself in the mirror and smile, but every time you smile, you end up frowning. You simply don’t like the appearance of your front teeth, and you wish you could fix them for good. With porcelain veneers, you truly can claim the stunning smile that you’ve been missing for a long time or maybe the attractive smile you’ve never had.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed on your front teeth to give your teeth strength in addition to making them look beautiful. These veneers can help you to alter several aspects of your teeth, including:
- Tooth shape/contours
- Tooth size
- Tooth color
- Gap between teeth
- Fractured teeth
When you arrive for your porcelain veneer consultation, your cosmetic dentist will first analyze your smile to determine the best way to improve it. You may try on veneers in order to get an idea of how they look in your mouth.
During the porcelain veneer procedure, your dentist will remove some of the enamel – the hard covering of a tooth – from the front teeth that you are treating. This ensures that your new porcelain veneers will have enough space to fit onto your teeth. Then, a resin will be placed between your new veneers and your teeth. The dentist will use a curing light to make the resin hard.
Veneers are particularly ideal solutions if your teeth are stained and bleaching treatments seem to have no effect on them. In addition, if you have problems related to your bite/your teeth overlap, veneers can be a relatively non-invasive fix.
Veneers are advantageous because they look like your real teeth, and unlike a crown, a veneer does not require your natural tooth to be altered in a major way as part of the treatment.
