A perfect smile does not have to be a cookie-cutter Hollywood smile. The only thing that makes a smile perfect is that it gives you confidence. If you find yourself hiding your smile, covering your teeth when you laugh, or holding back when you speak from fear that you will show your teeth, then you do not have a perfect smile. To gain that confidence through a smile, your dentist can help you sort through cosmetic and restorative options that may be best for you. Porcelain veneers can address several issues all at once.
Gaps or misalignment
Large gaps between teeth can be filled in by covering one of both of the teeth surrounding the gap with a veneer. The veneers can be custom-made so that the personality of the gap can remain rather than filling it in completely. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened by adhering a porcelain veneer. If teeth are shaped differently than the rest of the smile, porcelain veneers can add symmetry and consistency.
Some stains are deeper than the enamel. When a stain is this deep, even professional whitening may not be able to remove it. Porcelain veneers can be custom colored to your desired shade. The material of the porcelain layers is similar to a natural tooth which makes for a realistic appearance.
Cracks, chips, and damage
There are times when damage to the enamel requires treatment to save a tooth. But sometimes, a chip or crack poses no threat to the health of a tooth. When the threat is only to the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers can make a difference.
