Every smile is perfect in its own way. If imperfections in the appearance of your teeth do not bother you then they are not imperfections. But if you find yourself using your hand to cover your mouth when you laugh or if you only don a closed-mouth smile in your family photos, you might not be proud of your smile. You should be able to smile freely without worrying about that old chip or that permanent staining. If you have cosmetic issues that make you feel insecure, porcelain veneers might help you solve those issues. Issues, such as:
Shape and size
Injuries that result in chips or cracks can cause teeth to look misshapen. There can also be a tooth that is naturally a different shape than the rest of the smile. The size of teeth can vary drastically making a smile look uneven. There are even times when the teeth all match each other, but they are disproportionate to the gums. Porcelain veneers can be applied to a tooth or teeth to even out the smile.
Some staining can be removed through cleaning or whitening. But there is some permanent staining that external whitening cannot remove. In some situations, there is a single tooth that is discolored from the rest of the teeth. Porcelain veneers can brighten a smile.
If a gap is very small and minor, porcelain veneers could be a more affordable and less time-invasive option than braces. Porcelain veneers might also be a better option in cases of slightly crooked alignment.
If you hide your smile, porcelain veneers might be right for you.
