beautiful smile with porcelain veneersUsually, choosing the right cosmetic dentistry treatment depends on the exact nature of your smile’s blemishes. After all, each enhancement is designed to tackle a specific problem, like teeth-whitening for extrinsic stains, or tooth-colored fillings to repair cavities. The good thing about porcelain veneers, however, is that they are equally effective at addressing a number of different issues with long-lasting, lifelike results.

What They Are

Informally referred to as “instant smile makeovers,” veneers are thin porcelain shells that are hand-crafted to the shape of your teeth’s front surfaces. For optimal realism, each veneer is carefully tinted and layered to mimic a natural tooth’s appearance. For optimal convenience, each veneer is also created as single piece, allowing them to address one or several teeth with a multitude of cosmetic blemishes.

What They Fix

Stubborn Stains

Teeth stains are typically erased with a convenient teeth-whitening treatment, which you can apply from home over the course of a couple of weeks. Sometimes, however, stains aren’t so easily resolved. When stains are too stubborn for teeth-whitening, porcelain veneers may revitalize your smile.

Chips and Cracks

Teeth that are chipped or cracked aren’t always in immediate danger, but they can still affect how your smile looks and how well your teeth fit together when they meet. If the damage doesn’t threaten your oral health, then it might be fixable with an appropriate number of porcelain veneers.

Minor Misalignment

Modern dentistry offers a number of discreet alternatives to metal braces that allow you to straighten your teeth, such as Six Month Smiles® and Invisalign® Clear Braces. If tooth misalignment (malocclusion) doesn’t drastically affect your bite, you might skip orthodontic treatment altogether by correcting your crooked teeth with a series of veneers.
