Porcelain veneers are considered one of the most innovative solutions in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers have revamped and transformed countless smiles, even those of your favorite celebrities. Veneers are wafer thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They require that a tiny portion of your existing tooth enamel be shaved off to foster a more secure and long-term hold for the veneer. However, veneers can be customized in shape, color, size and form – which means you can finally create and achieve the smile of your dreams.
There are many reasons why patients choose porcelain veneers, including the following:
You Have Flaws Within the Front Teeth
Veneers are specifically designed to improve the front teeth, or the teeth that are visible when you smile. It is important to know that veneers merely cover up aesthetic imperfections, such as chips, discoloration, gaps, etc. Therefore, if you have front row flaw in your smile that is a constant source of insecurity for you, veneers can be the perfect solution.
You’re Not a Candidate for Dental Bonding
Some patients who have minor cosmetic flaws can get away with a simple dental bonding procedure, such as filling in a small gap or fixing one chipped tooth. However, not all patients can effectively address their concerns with bonding. In such cases, veneers are the best option, as they can improve more moderate aesthetic issues or those that involve multiple teeth.
You Have Size Issues
When you have one or two teeth that are longer or shorter than the others, it can throw your smile off balance. Beauty is largely defined by symmetry. Therefore, in order to provide a more harmonious smile, you can choose porcelain veneers. Veneers can be customized in the exact length and width that you desire.
You Want Instant Orthodontics
Did you know that veneers can make your teeth look straighter too? If your bite alignment is not a problem and your crooked or gapped teeth reside in the front portion of your smile, you can get veneers as a form of “instant orthodontics” instead of wearing braces for months or years.
You Need Fast Results
When it comes to a smile makeover, not everyone is able or willing to endure several appointments and wait weeks for their results. With veneers, you’re in luck. A smile makeover using porcelain veneers only takes two office visits!
