Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me?

Porcelain Veneers are thin dental coverings which are placed on top of front teeth to make your teeth look more beautiful.Porcelain Veneers are very useful in dentistry since they let dentists do so much with your smile. Since Porcelain Veneers are very thin, typically the size of a thick contact lens, they do minimal damage to your teeth. They are made from durable porcelain, which is very resilient and can stand your bite forces. Porcelain Veneers match your teeth shape and are nearly impossible to distinguish from natural teeth. Plus, they don’t stain or change color over time, so they look as good as new even ten years down the line. Your Porcelain Veneers are custom designed with the goal of restoring your ideal smile based upon your idea of the perfect smile. They are the most common cosmetic treatment offered by cosmetic dentists, aside from teeth whitening and Invisalign©. To learn more about Porcelain Veneers, click here. Now, let’s find out if Porcelain Veneers are right for you:

You’re Not Happy With Your Teeth Color

If your teeth have turned dark due to wear-and-tear, aging, old fillings or other traumatic factors, then traditional tooth whitening treatments won’t help out much. Porcelain Veneers are your perfect solution. By placing Porcelain Veneers, your dentist can give you teeth that are as white as you can possibly imagine. Since Porcelain Veneers don't stain either, the color that you see today is pretty much what they are going to look like forever.

Straightening Your Front Teeth

Porcelain Veneers can align your front teeth while simultaneously beautifying them. If you have minor crowding or spacing between your front 4 to 6 teeth, then Porcelain Veneers can straighten your teeth without the need for long orthodontic treatment. The fact that they also give you a perfect, white set of teeth is an added bonus!

Your Front Teeth Are Chipping

You may have damaged your front teeth due to a poor bite, bad habits or excessive teeth grinding. Bonding will not work as a permanent solution for these cases since you will just knock the bonding loose over time. On the other hand, Porcelain Veneers can handle excessive bite pressure while protecting your teeth at the same time. Placing Porcelain Veneers will not only protect your teeth from further damage, but it also enhances your smile.

Gummy Smile

Porcelain Veneers can actually reduce a gummy smile appearance in conjunction with some minor gum recontouring. First, you need to trim your gums, typically by using laser surgery, so that there is more tooth structure and less gum showing. Once your gums have healed and settled down, your dentist can now place Porcelain Veneers on your front teeth. This will significantly reduce the gummy appearance of your smile while beautifying your teeth at the same time.

Cosmetic Enhancement or Rejuvenation

Sometimes, Porcelain Veneers are purely placed for vanity purposes. You may not be happy with your teeth appearance, color or shape and simply want to enhance your smile as a whole. If this is the case, Porcelain Veneers are most likely your best bet. You can make your teeth look as white and perfect as you want them to be.

Conclusion

If you’re planning on receiving Porcelain Veneers, be sure to find an experienced cosmetic dentist. There are many factors that come into play when choosing size, color and shape of your new smile. Only an experienced and skillful dentist can visualize and address you problems to give you the beautiful smile of your dreams. Talk to your doctor about the design of your teeth and what your idea of an ideal smile is. We will be sure to give you the smile of your dreams, one that you will love for years to come.
