The Facts About Porcelain Veneers

When you first meet someone your teeth are one of the first things they see. What image do you want to portray? When your teeth look and feel beautiful it can increase your self-confidence and help you make a good first impression. Porcelain veneers have long been a treatment that dentists around the nation use to help patients achieve a beautiful, even smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are extremely thin, custom-designed shells of material that are bonded to individual teeth to give them a new look. Doctors can completely change the appearance of your teeth through their design of the veneers, which makes it easier than ever for you to receive the perfect look to match your individual features. Each veneer is tooth-colored and stain-resistant, and mimics the way light reflects off natural teeth. These properties make it very difficult for people to even tell that you have them in place.

A Common Solution

Veneers have been used for many years to correct some of the most common cosmetic problems that patients face with their teeth. This includes teeth that are

• Chipped or broken
• Gapped
• Discolored
• Worn down
• Misaligned
• Irregularly shaped
• Stained

When years of orthodontic procedures and other treatments are not a good option for you, veneers can help you get the look you desire.

Are You a Candidate?

Unfortunately, not everyone is a suitable candidate for veneers. If you are suffering from gum disease or have significant decay in your teeth you may not be able to undergo the treatment. Other factors like grinding and clenching your teeth, misalignment of your bite and insufficient tooth enamel may also affect your ability to receive veneers. Ultimately, your teeth must be healthy and strong in order for treatment to be successful.
