If you’re thinking about improving your smile’s appearance, then you probably think about it a lot. Your smile plays a big role in your everyday life, and a lack of confidence in its appearance can be a constant downer. Fortunately, you have plenty of options for improving your smile’s appearance, depending on what your specific concerns are. If you have several of them, then we may recommend one or more custom-designed porcelain veneers to address them.
The issues veneers can fix for you
Most cosmetic dental treatments are designed to address specific issues, which can sometimes make smile improvement seem complicated. However, cosmetic improvement with porcelain veneers can mean several different things. Veneers are designed to completely transform the appearance of your tooth by replacing its front surface with a lifelike, custom-designed porcelain shell. This gives veneers the ability to address several different types of cosmetic dental issues, including mild to moderate tooth damage (such as chips and cracks), severe blemishes (such as severe tooth discoloration), and more.
The minimally invasive prep work
For a porcelain veneer to transform your tooth, your dentist first has to prepare the tooth to receive it. This is true of many dental restorations, such as porcelain crowns, but with veneers, the process is minimally invasive due to their incredibly thin structures. Most veneers are less than 0.5mm, and preparing teeth to receive them only requires sculpting a minimal amount of enamel from its front surface. The reduced amount of tooth preparation means your tooth can remain stronger and healthier for life, with lower chances of sustaining more damage, developing decay, or becoming loose or compromised.
The benefits to your smile and oral health
The minimally invasive nature of porcelain veneers is one of the most important benefits they provide to your oral health. However, veneers offer more than just minimally invasive smile improvement. For example, when a veneer is utilized to correct a tooth that is misshapen or slightly of out alignment, it can help improve your bite function by restoring its balance. Placing a veneer over a chipped or cracked tooth can also help preserve the tooth’s strength and integrity without the need for a more involved dental crown.
