Good dental health doesn’t always translate into a visually-flawless smile. Especially as we age, our teeth will eventually show signs of the years of they’ve been in use, exhibiting stains from your food and beverages, or chips and cracks from anecdotal accidents. If you feel like it’s time for a new smile, fret not; there’s a good chance we can create one without having to work extensively on your teeth by using high-quality, lifelike porcelain veneers.
The Secret to Improve Your Smile
The secret to expert cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile’s appearance without altering your teeth any more than is necessary, since they won’t be able to regrow any of the structure that’s sculpted away. Porcelain veneers, which are shells of porcelain less than 0.5 mm thick, can be bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth with minimal preparation, leaving most of your healthy tooth structure intact.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Their thin, yet durable, construction is made possible by the porcelain used to create veneers. The semi-translucent material is layered to mimic your natural tooth’s dentin and enamel, and the layers make the porcelain strong enough to endure biting and chewing pressure. Because they’re placed over the visible parts of your teeth, veneers can correct a multitude of different blemishes simultaneously, including;
- Teeth stains that don’t respond to professional teeth-whitening
- Chipped edges and cracked surfaces (if not severe)
- Conspicuous spaces between teeth
- Teeth that appear too small
- Teeth that have lost their shape due to excessive wear
- Slightly crooked, uneven, or misshapen teeth
