Chipped, discolored or misshapen teeth can affect how you feel and how you look. Repairing these dental problems can instantly boost someone’s appearance, dental function, and self-esteem. Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a more attractive smile. Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the front of a tooth or teeth to give them a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Whether you are looking to change the size, color, shape or length of a tooth, these veneers can help give you a more natural and beautiful smile.
When your teeth are less than perfect, porcelain veneers can offer you a natural and beautiful look. From misaligned teeth or irregularly-shaped teeth to chipped, worn or broken teeth, porcelain dental veneers can be used to enhance the appearance of your smile by correcting discoloration, making teeth appear longer, straighter or more evenly-shaped, or to fill in gaps between teeth.
There are other options for correcting damaged, crooked or gapped teeth. Dental veneers enjoy a number of advantages compared to other tooth correction options. They are more stain resistant than resin veneers and are closer in appearance to one’s natural tooth, for example. They also are cost-effective and maintain the health of your natural teeth.
Regular maintenance will be needed to ensure the optimal health of your teeth and veneers, including regular brushing and flossing. If they are cared for properly, porcelain veneers can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
