Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that can strengthen and correct disfigured teeth while still having the same look as your natural teeth. With this cosmetic treatment you can be more confident of having a attractive smile.
Veneers and its benefits
Porcelain veneers are often recommended to patients looking to make slight position alterations to their teeth or change the shape, size, and/or color of their teeth.
The veneers treatment is a very successful option in many situations where a patient’s original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in minor bite-related problems. There are some patients whose teeth have superficial stains that do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching, and in these situations getting porcelain veneers may be the best option.
Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is very impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Compared to natural teeth, custom-made veneers have resistance to coffee and tea stains, and even cigarette smoke because veneers are made of high-tech materials.
Compared to crowns, porcelain veneers will have your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneers.
If your teeth is resistant to whitening, veneers are perfect since they can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white. We recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps in your teeth – reasons that may be a hindrance to you having an attractive smile.
