Are your teeth discolored or misaligned? Are they cracked, broken or have large gaps between them? If so, you may be a great candidate for porcelain veneers. Veneers are great alternatives to dentures. They cover the front of the teeth, like a shell, and are custom-made specifically for you. They are colored to match your natural teeth and are sized accordingly. Dental veneers can be made of many materials, but veneers made of porcelain are durable and reflect light similarly to the way that natural teeth do. This allows them to blend in with your real teeth.
If your teeth are severely stained and don’t respond well to whitening or if you have cosmetic dental issues, such as chips and cracks, veneers might be the solution for you. To be a good candidate for porcelain veneers, it’s important you already have good oral hygiene and enough tooth enamel where the veneer can be placed. If you grind your teeth or have very uneven teeth, veneers may not be a good choice for you.
If you think you’re a good candidate for porcelain veneers, you should have a consultation with your dentist to discuss if this is the right choice for you. The veneers will be bound to your teeth and will immediately enhance your smile, hide any dental flaws and prevent any further breakage. Your oral health will increase with porcelain veneers. The option of veneers allows you to simply replace one or two broken or decayed teeth, rather than replacing multiple teeth or getting a full set of dentures.
