Most smile makeovers you see on television are created using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are custom designed to fit on the front of your tooth. Veneers are made to resemble real teeth in size, shape, and color and are bonded to misaligned, damaged, or discolored teeth to improve their appearance. They can make a dramatic change in the appearance of your smile, and typically last longer than another common cosmetic dental technique – known as bonding.
How can porcelain veneers help my smile?
Porcelain veneers improve your smile by correcting a multitude of cosmetic concerns, including: gaps in teeth; chipped and broken teeth; dull or yellowing teeth that cannot be whitened by traditional means; “gummy smiles” (showing too much gum when one smiles); and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers broaden, straighten, whiten, and beautify most any smile. Veneers can be done in as little as two clinical visits. Many of our patients feel like this was the best improvement that could have been done for their overall confidence. Ask us at your next visit about how porcelain veneers can improve your smile or send us an email.
Are you are thinking of other cosmetic improvements, such as crowns, porcelain veneers, or new fillings to replace the old, discolored ones? If so, consider whitening your teeth first, then any future restorations we make for you will be matched to your whitened teeth, giving you fantastic results.
