Porcelain veneers have a reputation of being Hollywood and cookie-cutter, but that reputation does not give the full picture. Porcelain veneers can transform a smile into a unique, natural-looking smile fit just for you. So, how do you know if porcelain veneers are right for you? The first step is talk to your dentist. The team at Grinnell Street Dental in Sheridan, WY can talk with you about your smile goals and your smile’s needs to decide the best decision for you. Today, however, we can talk about two major questions when deciding if veneers are right for you.
Is Your Smile Healthy?
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are permanently fixed to the front of your teeth. They can cover up almost any cosmetic issue you may have with your teeth. More important than your smile’s appearance though is your smile’s health. Before placing veneers on your teeth, your dentist will want to ensure that your smile is in good health. Depending on your needs, a full-mouth rehabilitation may be an option. A full-mouth rehabilitation considers all of your health and cosmetic needs. While you may need to defend against tooth decay with a filling, you may also want your teeth to look more even and brighter.
Do You Want To Update Your Look?
As stated above, porcelain veneers can address almost all cosmetic issues you may have with your smile. If you have teeth that are unevenly shaped and sized, the thin shells can cover it. If you have deep discoloration coming from inside the tooth, veneers can make your teeth look fresh and white. If you have a large gap between two or more teeth, veneers can help make them look properly spaced. In some instances, if you have just one or two teeth with an issue, cosmetic bonding may be a more conservative way to update the appearance.
