The Ways Porcelain Veneers Improve Teeth Appearance

Friday, Jul 08,2016


Healthy teeth can still be unattractive due to genes or life experiences that make them less than presentable when smiling.
<br><br>
Porcelain veneers could be a cost-effective answer to improving the appearance of stained or slightly defective teeth. Made of thin layers of life-like dental porcelain, veneers cover unsightly teeth and give them a new look with minimal tooth preparation.
<br><br>
Here are 4 appearance problems porcelain veneers can change for a more attractive smile.
<br><br>
Color ~ Teeth can become discolored for a lot of reasons: age-related yellowing, certain foods and beverages, or tetracycline use at an early age. In some cases, better oral hygiene or whitening can restore some of the natural brightness to teeth. But in other cases, especially deep discoloration within a tooth, external whitening won’t help. Veneers with life-like color that match your other teeth could be a way to permanently brighten your smile.
<br><br>
Shape ~ Although resilient, teeth can be damaged. A significant mouth injury can result in chipping and tooth grinding habits could cause abnormal wear that makes the teeth appear shorter. And, you may have been born with one or more teeth that are oddly shaped — too rounded or square — that can affect your smile. Customized veneers can bring a more attractive shape to your teeth.
<br><br>
Size ~ A normal tooth’s size should be proportional to the lips and the amount of gums showing. Shorter teeth (or those worn down) can upset this proportion. Veneers can “lengthen” your teeth to a more appealing size. But there’s a limit — if you’ve lost a good portion of tooth structure due to disease or injury, a porcelain crown that completely covers the tooth may be the better option.
<br><br>
Alignment & Spacing ~ Excessive gaps between teeth, crooked teeth or poor bites (malocclusions) may require orthodontic treatments like braces. If, however, these alignment and spacing problems are minor — like a slightly crooked tooth or a minute gap between the front teeth — veneers could be a more cost-effective alternative that can be achieved in less time. It’s also possible with some orthodontic situations to use veneers in conjunction with braces or other treatments.
