Can Porcelain Veneers Upgrade My Smile?

Can Porcelain Veneers Upgrade My Smile?Some flaws in your smile are not flaws at all. Maybe you have a small gap that you feel makes your smile unique and different from everyone else’s. A flaw is only a flaw for two reasons: that it makes you feel insecure or that it causes problems with your health. If you have issues with the appearance of your smile that make you feel self-conscious about smiling, talking, or laughing, it may be time to consider a smile upgrade. Porcelain veneers can be a good option when you are looking to refresh your smile’s appearance. 

Address Many Issues At Once

If you have just one or two teeth that have minor issues, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic bonding. A crown may be a suitable fit depending on your needs. If you have several teeth that have one issue or several teeth with several different issues, porcelain veneers may be the best choice for your smile. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are applied directly and permanently to the outer layer of your teeth. Because they cover the external front of your tooth, they can completely mask the cosmetic issues that may lie beneath. If you have deep discoloration, unevenly sized or shaped teeth, chips, cracks, large gaps, or other issues, porcelain veneers can cover them.

Customize To Fit Your Smile

A common misconception surrounding porcelain veneers is that they are a cookie-cutter solution. Some people believe that veneers give you a Hollywood smile that looks like everyone else. In reality, porcelain veneers can be custom crafted to fit your needs. The porcelain can be color-matched to blend in with your smile. The color can be matched to your desired whiteness as well, if you are looking to cover up some discoloration. The veneers can be made to look similar to an upgraded version of your smile, so that you maintain your uniqueness.
