For discolored, stained or misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers can offer an effective solution without the need to undergo oral surgery.
Indeed, a cosmetic dentist may recommend porcelain veneers as a solution to several oral deficiencies in order to improve a patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers are thin ‘jackets’ which are customized to fit a patient’s individual teeth and designed to cover the front of the tooth.
Veneers can be used to correct flaws in a tooth’s shape, size or color and are created following dental impressions taken by a cosmetic dentist. The impressions are used to create the veneers using ultra-thin layers of dental porcelain, which are then bonded onto the patient’s teeth to provide a perfect looking smile. Veneers can also be used to conceal chipped or damaged teeth and to close gaps and straighten teeth.
Once fitted, veneers look and feel perfectly natural, so others will be unawares that the patient is even wearing them; and, as the porcelain is highly resistant to staining, they will help to maintain the brightness of the smile throughout the veneers’ lifespan.
Porcelain veneers treatment is typically quick, with the full treatment taking only a couple of visits to complete. The first visit will involve preparation of the teeth to be treated and the taking of impressions in order to properly craft the veneers. The second visit involves the placement and bonding of the veneers to the patient’s teeth, and so restoring the smiles natural appearance and brightness.
And, such is the versatility of porcelain veneers, patients can build the perfect smile by using veneers to conceal any imperfections that may exist in their teeth, or address areas in which the patient is not happy with and would like altered – all the while retaining the tooth and avoiding cosmetic surgery.
Problems such as chipped teeth, tooth discoloration and misaligned teeth are all candidates for treatment via porcelain veneers, and the results of the treatment are both immediate and dramatic. Porcelain veneers are a perfect solution to giving you the smile you deserve.
