Your smile is one of the first features that people notice when they meet you, and when you’re not satisfied with the appearance of your smile it’s always on your mind. You might feel self-conscious when you meet or speak to new people, or perhaps you avoid smiling freely in the family photo, no matter what your situation may be, feeling embarrassed about your smile takes its toll. Whether you have fractures or small chipping, or perhaps your teeth are stained or discolored, the good news is that cosmetic dentistry offers a number of options for you to improve and enhance the appearance of your smile. Here are some ways that porcelain veneers in Highland Village can improve your smile.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that are designed to bond to your natural tooth structure. Veneers can repair one tooth or be used to enhance an entire smile. Veneers fit over your tooth and can be used to restore many issues including:
- Small fractures and chips
- Gaps and spacing between teeth
- Size discrepancies
- Staining or discoloration
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Because they’re bonded directly to your tooth, dental veneers actually add strength to your tooth. They are durable and can last for a number of years with great home care and regular dental visits. You’ll be able to care for your veneers with regular brushing and flossing, although you’ll want to avoid abrasive toothpastes.
Veneers don’t discolor, so while you won’t have to worry about staining after they’re placed, you’ll definitely want to discuss what your desired shading is prior to your veneer treatment in order to ensure the results you desire. Veneers are a great way to enhance the color, shape and appearance of your smile.
