Cosmetic dentistry has allowed people to keep their smiles clean and pristine beyond what humans used to be capable of naturally. From your standard and ever-helpful teeth whitening to dental implants that make gaps left behind by missing teeth a thing of the past, there is something for everyone to improve the look of their smile. One such cosmetic dentistry treatment that has seen a massive increase in popularity in recent decades is the use of porcelain veneers to rejuvenate the look and feel of teeth.
Porcelain veneers for teeth are a thin layer of porcelain that is used to improve the overall aesthetic of your teeth. This is done by using a dental adhesive to attach them painlessly to the front surface of your teeth.
Here are a few of the most common problems people seek out porcelain veneers to help correct:
Minimal to Moderate Tooth Damage
As with any part of your body, getting through life without a couple of chips and blemishes around your teeth here and there is highly unlikely. Whether your teeth are suffering from discoloration that won’t go away (such as that caused by fluorosis) or a few of your teeth have physical damage like chips and scratches, porcelain veneers can make them look as good as new!
Minor Gaps and Tooth Misalignments
Despite their more common use as a solution for tooth damage and discoloration, porcelain veneers can also be used to correct tooth gaps and misalignments. Those troublesome spaces and inconsistencies will practically vanish once the veneers are bonded to your teeth. Of course, for more severe malocclusions, Invisalign and braces will be needed before veneers should be considered.
An Overall Unhappiness With Your Teeth
If your teeth aren’t troubled by gaps and blemishes, and you still find yourself unhappy with your smile, porcelain veneers may also provide a solution. Whether you’re dissatisfied with their size and shape or they aren’t your preferred shade of white, the porcelain shells can help change all of that and more.
