Whitening teeth stains to brighten your smile is one thing, but when your teeth have more than just stains to contend with, improving your smile can seem more complicated. Stains are just blemishes on the surfaces of your teeth (usually), but things like chipped edges, odd spaces, minor alignment issues, and more can require more direct cosmetic improvement. To help you avoid the need for undergoing several different procedures, your dentist might suggest making over your smile with one or more custom-designed porcelain veneers.
Fixing More than Other Treatments Can
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of advanced dental ceramic, or porcelain, that are designed to recreate the visible surfaces of your teeth. Each veneer is bonded to the front of a tooth, instantly rejuvenating its appearance by correcting all of its blemishes. This means veneers can address a wide variety of blemishes at once – more than most other cosmetic treatments can address alone.
Recreating Your Beautiful, Healthy Smile
While their application makes veneers a highly versatile option, the porcelain they’re made of is the secret to their highly lifelike appearance. Veneers recreate your healthy, beautiful smile by being custom-tinted to the specific color and shade of your tooth. Porcelain is even semi-translucent like natural tooth enamel, and when layered properly, it can reflect light just like your natural teeth.
Preserving Most of Your Tooth Structure
Because veneers are so thin, placing them is simple and doesn’t require significant alterations to your tooth structure. By carefully sculpting a minimal amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth, your dentist can ensure that each veneer fits comfortably and naturally with the contour of your smile. This helps you preserve a maximum amount of your healthy tooth structure, which in turn improves the long term health and integrity of your teeth.
