If you are looking for a total smile makeover, we recommend our natural-looking porcelain veneers. These thin, porcelain shells address a variety of dental aesthetic issues, from tooth discolouration to misaligned teeth. After two dental visits, you’ll never see your smile the same way again.
An Instant Smile Makeover with Porcelain Veneers
There are various reasons why your dentist may choose porcelain veneers for your smile issues, and you might have the same reason, too. For a quick guide, if you have the following dental cosmetic flaws, you may opt for porcelain veneers as the best option for your smile.
- Dark or stained teeth
- Teeth that are crowded or crooked
- Gaps between your front teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
Investing in porcelain veneers also means saving your time and money. Other cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening, dental bonding and orthodontic braces involves multiple appointments and can take several month or years to see the final results. With porcelain veneers, you can see your dream smile transformation right after two appointments only.
Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Though porcelain veneers repair multiple structural or cosmetic dental problems, not everyone can benefit from this multi-tasking cosmetic dental treatment. If you are opting for porcelain veneers, you must have good periodontal (gum) and overall oral health. People who are committed to proper oral care and hygiene are also ideal candidates.
In addition, you must have specific cosmetic goals to articulate to your dentist at initial consultation. In all cosmetic dental treatments, a patient must have realistic expectations as well. Since your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel, you must have a sufficient amount of it.
However, porcelain veneers may not be the right option if you have the following oral health issues:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Infected root canal
On a brighter note, your dentist can treat these problems and you can be cleared for any cosmetic enhancement. Patients who may be disqualified for veneers are those who habitually grind their teeth and clench their jaws. You can fully determine your candidacy for porcelain by scheduling an appointment with a skilled cosmetic dental professional. If you don’t qualify for veneers, there are many other smile makeover treatments that your dentist can recommend.
The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
Many patients prefer porcelain for several sensible reasons. Due to the materials from which veneers are made, they look more natural and are resistant to stains. Porcelain veneers also tend to last longer than dental bonding. Compared to dental crowns, porcelain veneers require less preparation and shaping of the tooth, which are a crown’s disadvantage. Also, porcelain veneers are a stronger, more natural-looking alternative to dental bonding.
