In the past, the only way to correct dental imperfections was to cover the tooth with a crown. Today, in most cases there are several alternatives: crown, composite resin bonding or porcelain veneer or even cosmetic contouring or orthodontics.
So what is a Porcelain Veneer?
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or plastic that is bonded to a tooth to improve its color and shape. A porcelain veneer generally covers only the front and top of a tooth. Porcelain veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth.
When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from damage and restore their original appearance.
What are Porcelain Veneers used for?
Porcelain Veneers can be the ultimate smile makeover treatment!
Having a dazzling, balanced smile is possible, thanks to porcelain veneers. Since veneers fit over the front of teeth, they transform the smile by completely concealing imperfections.
Porcelain Veneers can be the solution for numerous aesthetic flaws
Porcelain veneers camouflage numerous cosmetic problems, making them an option for a wide range of patients. Chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment are among the flaws veneers can cover.
Porcelain Veneers can be an alternative to orthodontic treatment
Many people are dissatisfied with their smile’s alignment, but they avoid seeking treatment because they don’t want traditional braces. Porcelain dental veneers can even be specially fitted to reshape crooked teeth that may otherwise require orthodontics.
Compatible with other dental treatments
Although porcelain veneers are often all that is needed for a smile makeover, they are also compatible with other dental treatments. For example, they can be placed in combination with teeth whitening, a full-mouth reconstruction, TMJ treatment, or neuromuscular dentistry to completely repair and enhance a patient’s smile.
