What Imperfections Can Veneers Address?
One of the main reasons that cosmetic veneers are so popular is that they can effectively address a wide range of concerns. Whether you were born with dental imperfections or your teeth gradually lost their beauty over time, porcelain veneers may be your answer now.
Porcelain veneers are meant to cover up or hide the flaws of your smile. Therefore, they are typically reserved for the front teeth. Ideal candidates for veneers often include patients with one or more of the following aesthetic concerns:
- Misshapen teeth
- Gapped or widely spaced teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped or worn down teeth
- Crooked teeth
What Does a Smile Makeover with Veneers Involve?
Veneers requires multiple steps that can typically be completed in just two to three office visits. First, your cosmetic dentist will listen to your specific goals and take an impression of your teeth so that a set of custom, high-quality veneers can be crafted. Next, your veneers (wafer-thin shells of porcelain) can be placed. This includes removing a small portion of your existing tooth enamel so that the veneers can strongly bond to the front surface of your tooth. Keep in mind that only minor shaving of your tooth is necessary. Once your veneers are bonded in place, your cosmetic dentist can make minor adjustments for your comfort and fit and polish your veneers to finish your new smile.
