If you are unhappy with the overall appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers may be able to help. Porcelain veneers are possibly the most powerful procedure in cosmetic dentistry, capable of correcting numerous common complaints people have about their smile. At Beautiful Smiles by Design in Dalton, Georgia, we can design a porcelain veneers solution for your smile, whether the problem is one tooth or the entire set.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic dentistry restorations used to improve the appearance and possibly the function of your teeth. They are thin facades of porcelain that are carefully bonded to the front (and often the top) of your teeth. They become the visible and functional surface of your teeth.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Correct?
Because porcelain veneers can replace the front and top of your teeth, they are a powerful treatment for many cosmetic dentistry problems. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are:
Worn or naturally short
Porcelain veneers allow you to redesign your smile to give yourself the attractively proportioned smile you have always desired. Teeth whitening is a good procedure for improve the appearance of discolored teeth, but its results are limited by the inherent color of your enamel, which becomes grayed or yellowed with age. Porcelain veneers, can give you brighter teeth than whitening allows.
Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct minor orthodontic problems. In a procedure sometimes called “instant orthodontics” your teeth are reshaped so that they are no longer crooked, gapped, or crowded, and instead are straight and properly spaced. While traditional orthodontics can take a year or more to complete, instant orthodontics takes only a couple of weeks and a few visits to our office.
A porcelain veneer can also be used to improve the appearance of a single tooth that has been damaged.
Natural-looking, Long-lasting Results
Once your porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth, you will enjoy the natural-looking results you see. Your porcelain veneers can be properly proportioned and placed to give the shape of natural teeth. Their coloration can be matched to your other teeth or made several shades whiter without looking unnatural. Porcelain veneers also have the advantage of having the translucence and luster of natural tooth enamel.
With proper care, porcelain veneers are also very long-lasting restorations. About 95% of veneers are expected to last 11 years or more, and during this time they will retain their original color and luster. When properly cared for, porcelain veneers will not stain.
