Your smile is one of the most dominant features of your face. It plays an important role in first impressions, and can significantly impact your self-confidence, for better or worse. Luckily, like other aspects of your appearance, you can tweak your smile’s visage to improve its aesthetic value and your pride in showing it. When it comes to giving your smile a makeover, however, limiting the disturbance to your healthy tooth structures is vital to maintaining your good oral health in the process. To this end, porcelain veneers provide the optimal solution in many smile makeover cases that involve multiple tooth blemishes on more than one tooth. Your Sheridan cosmetic dentist, Dr. Donald Coon, explains the diversity of porcelain veneers, and why they’re ideal for providing your smile with the face it deserves.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
In the quest to provide dental restorations and replacements that closely resemble the real thing, dental porcelain is perhaps one of the most valuable resources. Used for a variety of treatments, including dental crowns and dentures, porcelain is also used to create dental veneers. Essentially thin wafers of dental porcelain, veneers are small shells that are custom-designed to match the contours of your smile, and the porcelain is specially layered to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth and can simultaneously cover a variety of cosmetic blemishes, including severe tooth stains, unsightly chips, odd spaces, and slightly misaligned teeth, among others.
The Beauty of Diversity
While correcting one or two tooth blemishes is relatively simple, porcelain veneers are invaluable for patients’ whose smiles need more than a mere touchup. A smile makeover considers your smile’s appearance as a whole, rather than concentrating on each individual tooth, and as a diverse, conservative treatment, porcelain veneers embody that ideal, often making them the go-to procedure to put the finishing touches on your new smile makeover.
