One of the greatest benefits of customized porcelain veneers is that they so closely resemble healthy, natural teeth that they look very lifelike and blend right in with your smile. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of teeth and they can improve your smile’s appearance by addressing several different types of blemishes all at once. Veneers can address multiple issues, such as severe discoloration, chips, or uneven spacing, at once on multiple teeth. Porcelain veneers can provide you with a smile makeover that can still feel natural-looking.
Covering Up Deep Discoloration
In most cases, tooth stains and discoloration can effectively be erased through some form of teeth-whitening treatment. Sometimes, though, the stains that discolor your teeth do not come from the outside of the tooth where a whitening treatment would be helpful. There are times where your teeth can look yellow or dull and the discoloration is coming from within the tooth (known as intrinsic discoloration). Intrinsic stains cannot be removed, but can be covered up by something like porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding.
Addressing Surface Damage
If you have one tooth with minor surface damage, then it could be repaired with cosmetic bonding. However, if you have several teeth that are damaged on the surface, then an appropriate number of porcelain veneers could be a more effective and conservative solution. If the damage goes past the surface, a restorative treatment may become necessary.
Closing Big Gaps or Spacing Issues
Teeth that have excessive spaces between them or that are slightly out of alignment with the teeth surrounding them can make your whole smile feel crooked. Sometimes a big gap between the two front teeth can make someone’s smile feel special, but if the gap or spacing of those teeth or any teeth cause insecurity, it is time to close them.
