When Should I Consider Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be used to conceal many common tooth imperfections, helping enhance the appearance of the teeth. Some candidates for porcelain veneers have cosmetic concerns regarding a single tooth. Made of a thin layer of porcelain-based material, a single veneer can easily enhance a tooth that is cracked or chipped. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each patient, and the shade of the veneer is designed to match the surrounding teeth for the most natural-looking smile.
Porcelain veneers can also accomplish a more dramatic, comprehensive transformation. Candidates who opt for porcelain veneers as part of a procedure such as a smile makeover typically have a variety of cosmetic needs they would like addressed. Used in this manner, multiple porcelain veneers can be used to cover gaps between teeth, correct the appearance of short or worn teeth, and improve mild tooth misalignment. Since porcelain veneers cover the front surface of the teeth, they may also be a good solution for candidates who wish to brighten a smile suffering from stained or discolored teeth.
