When Do I Choose Porcelain Veneers?

When Do I Choose Porcelain Veneers? Some cosmetic issues with your smile may not make you feel self-conscious. Maybe you have a small gap in your front teeth that gives you some pride in your smile. If you have a healthy smile that makes you feel confident, you already have a perfect smile. When your smile makes you feel self-conscious, when you ever find yourself smiling with your mouth closed, or when you use your hand to cover your smile when you talk or laugh, your smile is in need of some help. Porcelain veneers can give you that smile that will make you feel confident. When do you know when to choose veneers over other cosmetic options?

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain is a ceramic very similar to the material making up your natural teeth. The translucent quality of porcelain looks and acts much like the enamel of your teeth. Veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain that are applied directly to the front of your teeth. The veneers are customized and created to give you the color, shape, and size of teeth that will give you a confident smile!

Issues Addressed By Veneers

Porcelain veneers can close large gaps in between your teeth or make the gaps a bit smaller. If you have teeth that are wonky in shape or size, veneers can make your smile more symmetrical. Jagged edges, chips, and cracks on teeth can all be covered with veneers. Discoloration that comes from within the tooth cannot be removed by whitening, but can be addressed with porcelain veneers.

Other Cosmetic Options

Porcelain veneers can be a great option for a full smile makeover. However, if you have a single broken tooth or just a few teeth with issues, you may be able to address it with a crown or cosmetic bonding. Stains on the outer layer of the teeth may be able to be removed with a professional whitening treatment.
