Very few individuals, yes, this includes celebrities with flawless smiles, are born with perfect teeth. In fact, those picture-perfect smiles have, in most cases, been cosmetically improved.
Porcelain veneers are a minimally-invasive and simple treatment our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Angela Toy, here at Arbor Hills Dental in Newberg, OR, utilizes for improving less-than flawless grins. The slim porcelain shells can conceal all kinds of flaws to improve your teeth’s appearance and, in turn, your overall look.
Mask Cosmetic Flaws and Gaps
Fabricated correctly, porcelain veneers will fit over your front teeth’s surfaces to conceal imperfections like gaps, stains, chips, and oddly-shaped teeth. They can be customized to match your real teeth’s color for that perfectly natural look. The porcelain shells can cover one or several of your teeth.
Make Your Smile Bright and White
Professional bleaching is a practical solution for lots of people. However, not all people respond well to bleaching. For instance, if your stains are a result of excess fluoride during childhood or medications, teeth whitening won’t work for those stains.
Porcelain veneers, however, could mask these stains. They’re likewise more resistant to staining than your teeth’s natural enamel, ensuring that they remain whiter for longer. Just make sure to come in for your routine checkups and cleanings with your cosmetic dentist in Newberg, OR, to help prolong the life of your veneers.
Conceal Chips and Cracks
Besides enhancing your smile, porcelain veneers likewise offer extra resilience and strength. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, veneers can give you an additional protection layer that could help in preventing further damage.
However, it’s vital to note that although they can fix various imperfections, if you have a severely damaged tooth, your cosmetic dentist may recommend a more suitable treatment like a dental implant or crown to improve your affected tooth’s function and appearance.
Get a Straighter Smile Without Orthodontic Treatment
If you have some minor crookedness, you can resolve this without orthodontics. Since porcelain veneers go over your teeth, they can hide minor crookedness and make your teeth look straight. However, if your teeth’s placement impacts your oral health and/or bite, orthodontic treatment may be more appropriate for your needs.
