Convenient but Comprehensive Smile Improvement
The desire for a brighter, straighter, and more attractive smile can sometimes be tempered by fear of how much dental work would be needed to achieve it. Fortunately, patients are often surprised at how simple their cosmetic smile makeovers can be, especially with the help of one or more custom-designed porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, lifelike shells of porcelain that recreate the natural and blemish-free appearance of healthy teeth. Veneers are then bonded to the front surfaces of those teeth, instantly correcting a wide variety of types of tooth blemishes all at once.
The Biggest Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
One of the biggest benefits of porcelain veneers is the fact that they can so highly customized that they’re often indistinguishable from your healthy teeth. Each veneer is tinted to match the color and shade of your healthy teeth, and the porcelain is layered to reflect light the way healthy tooth enamel does. In addition to their appearance, however, veneers also provide the important advantage of helping you preserve a maximum amount of your tooth structure. To place a veneer, your dentist only has to modify a minimal amount of enamel from the tooth’s front surface. This allows the veneer to sit comfortably and flush with your other teeth, but doesn’t significantly affect the tooth’s overall health and structural integrity.
