Do you hide your smile when you’re in social settings? You may not even realize you’re doing it because you’ve become so comfortable from keeping those teeth concealed. If your teeth have cosmetic issues that are causing you to shrink in social and professional settings, then it’s time to make a change. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can augment the shape, color, and symmetry of your smile to give you a beautiful set of confidence-inspiring teeth. Do you believe in your smile? Porcelain veneers can help you answer with a resounding “yes.”
Porcelain Dental Veneers Address a Range of Cosmetic Issues
Cosmetic dentistry situations should always be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, because everyone’s teeth are different, and everyone’s goals are different. Some people have trouble with teeth staining over time. Stubborn stains can cause your teeth to become discolored and unattractive. Some individuals have disproportionate teeth. That is, some of their teeth are much smaller, larger, longer, or shorter than other teeth. For some, it’s the shape of their smile. Porcelain dental veneers can address all of these issues with a single treatment.
Porcelain Veneers Are Fabricated from Lifelike Material
Dental veneers are made from thin sheets of dental porcelain. This special ceramic material is designed and treated to look just like natural tooth enamel. However, it can also be treated to appear brighter than teeth that have been stained by food and beverage pigment. The thin veneers are fabricated based on specifications from your teeth, so they’re designed to fit you and form a complete smile. Your dentist will first evaluate the issues that need to be corrected, and then fabricate the dental veneers accordingly.
Dental Veneers Can Give You a Desirable Smile
Before placing your dental veneers, your dentist will gently smooth the surfaces of your teeth so that the veneers form a clean bond. Once placed, you can still use your teeth like you normally would, but you’ll also enjoy the benefits of a beautifully aligned smile. The veneers can make small adjustments to the shape and cosmetic alignment of your teeth — changes that it would take braces or aligners significantly longer to achieve. If you want to correct a multitude of cosmetic issues with one treatment, dental veneers are the choice.
